Hey did you ever figure out what the crackling was? I have a week old baby chick thats doing the same thing. I gave her some antibiotics, not sure what else to do. She is eating and drinking normally.

I have a chick (I think 6 weeks old) I found two days ago in the coop doing the splits. I have her alone in the brooder now in a sling. I can't figure out if she is injured or has some paralysis. She has been eating and pooping fine until last night. Last night I noticed a faint sound coming from her abdomen or vent area. It sounds like Styrofoam melting or like small soda bubbles. Now she will eat a little but not drink. Any thoughts on how I can help her?

if she's doing the splits she might have spraddle leg.. what type of floor do you have in your brooder? if you have something like newspaper or plain cardboard it would be too slippery for them to have a grip resulting in what looks like them doing the splits.. there are a lot of posts on here just search "spraddle leg" or "splayed leg"

 

here is a good link

I have pine shavingin brooder and coop. She does the spits front and back not side to side. She also wont bend her legs. She will twitch them when she wants to move but can't curl them in. Also her feet wont curl around my finger. Plus they feel cold.
