This chick had been sneezing and wheezing but now seems ok. Still active and all. Tonight i noticed her crop looks really big. What do i do??

When chickens eat, their crops fill up, so it's normal for a crop to be full during the day. I see you're using an EcoGlow, so that means these chicks should be sleeping in complete darkness at night, which is good! The need that. Remove the feed from the brooder after lights-out tonight and check her crop in the morning- it should be empty. Obviously put the feed back after checking the chick's crop.

Her crop seems to have went down today so i will keep watching her. Haven't noticed anymore sneezing or wheezing either.
