6 week old turkey with bubbles under wing? Has anyone ever seen this? - Page 2

When popping them make sure it's s good hole for the air to escape

my  5 week old chick has these kind of air sack under her wing at the joint, but they expand and contract when she breaths. She has been injured for 2 days now, starting with limping around on one foot, now she can't get up without crying. I have her separate from the others and in her own pin, so she doesn't get further injured. I have been searching her for any sign of injuring , but can't find anything, then today I found these expanding air pockets under her wing. is it normal for these pockets to expand when breathing?

Welcome to BYC! Can you take her to a vet?
