i have a nearly 3 week old chick that has some sort of foam coming from it's mouth? its pretty inactive, staying away from the rest in the corner huddld up.....any idea what could be causing this? i switched from newspaper to wood shavings last week and have since had a few sneezes but nothing else out of the ordinary. all other 20 chicks seem fine.

any ideas??

well i dosed all the chicks water with half strength denagards yesterday to be on the safe side and today the little chick is 'back to normal' running with the rest, no foam or discharge. what could have caused that? should i continue with anti-bs or was that probably just a coincidence thats hes better and not due to them??


im stumped?

Someone else on here had a similar problem, they said it was not enough grit. Could be sour crop, maybe? I don't know but glad the chick is feeling better.
