Should i worry about my chick

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

She seems overall healthy except for the fact that i noticed her "yawning" and her poop is runny compared to the others. I was thinking it could be gapeworm but i dont really know much about it.Also, one side of her beak is left open while the other is closed.

I just found out that chicks produce cecal and i held mine till she pooped. I feel like an idiotūüėÄ so i guess she really was just yawning but i am wondering why half her mouth stays cracked open on one side. Was she just born like that...uneven?

I had one that use to yawn when she was young, still does now and them. don't know about the beak though.  maybe a crossbeak?  or like you said, just uneven?  can she eat and drink ok?

Not instructional, but what a ride, only read if you have time to kill/can't sleep, it is a book you can't put down!:

Oh yes, last year was my first year with chicks and I stressed over everything!  I've been through alot the first year, it seemed it was trial by fire.  I started with 6, now I have 5. Baby one of my EE passed away, it seemed she could not get her reproductive system working properly. :(  It is one of those things.  just do your best, it is all you can do :) we learn as we go. Also, post with any issues, there are many great people on these boards who have helped me tremendously.  Enjoy your babies, how fun! :weee
