Do chickens get sore throats?

I know it sounds like a silly question, but I'm sure one of my hens sounds a bit croaky.  Everything else is normal, breathing sounds normal, no discharge, just when she clucks she sounds like she's been on the woodbines again.

Coulsd be worms in the trachea, this causes a condition known as gapes.

Well I haven't wormed them yet as I wasn't planning to as routine, but will now.

Erm, do they get sore throats when they've been clucking too much?  I overslept yesterday and although they've got light and food and water they were making a right fuss waiting to be let out   .
