Our Australorp chick - 6 days old - keeps craning her neck and opening her beak, but not chirping when she does it. Her crop doesn't feel any bigger than the other chicks'. She's pooping. I (think) I attached a video so you can see. Any ideas?? Thanks!
I think its normal. our chickens do it alot. They have food and water availible at all times and on pine shavings. I thought it was yawning or trying to crow. I might be wrong but thats what mine do as well
One of my big chickens was doing the same thing yesterday. She had been picking at a small bush and had a tiny stick in her throat.....once it was gone whe was fine. Since this guy is so tiny could it just be a piece of food or something in her throat?
Our Australorp, Olympia, used to do that ALL THE TIME when she was a baby! We were so scared. But it's just yawning. Some of our new chicks do it a little, but Olympia did it a whole lot. I think your baby will be fine!
