    Hi my chicks were fine last night and this morning I went down and they look like this, 3 of them have swollen faces and knees. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC.

    I would suggest that re-post this on the "Emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" forum ASAP for the best responses.

    All the best

    x2 on CTKen's suggestion to post your picture and details on the emergencies forum.

    Good luck, I hope they'll be ok soon!

    Hope the ER folks can help you. If not please take them to a vet. I have never seen or read of anything like that. Could they have been bitten by spiders, fire ants, snakes???
