Chicken making high pitched wheezy whistle

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My 6 month old hen has started making a high pitched, slightly wheezy whistling sound today. It is not constant, but she is doing it once every 5-10 mins or so. She is eating and drinking and still active but she's never made this noise before. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Many thanks

Is she snotty or sneezing?

Some hens can have things like hayfever. But if they are very snotty and sneezing, they can have respiratory problems.

Hi,

Apologies for the delay in replying, I didn't realise I had had any responses! So the whistling noise has now stopped of it's own accord thankfully- I did wonder about hay fever... she seems in good health otherwise. 

 

Unfortuantely she has now gone broody, although I am assuming that is unrelated!?
