    I HAVE 24 JUMBOS AND THEY HAVE ALL BEEN DOING GREAT. BUT TODAY WHEN I WENT IN THE COOP I NOTICED ONE WAS ACTING STRANGE. IT'S EXTENDING ITS NECK UPWARD AND OPENING ITS MOUTH THEN BRING ITS NECK DOWN. KINDA LOOKS LIKE WHEN BABY BIRDS ARE BORN THEY LIFT THEIR HEADS WAITING FOR THE WORMS. IT'S EVEN DOING THIS WHILE SLEEPING! WHAT COULD BE WRONG?????????????

    My poish does this when she is hot. I started giving her water with the electrolytes and vitamins in it (was the only way the feedstore had it) and she seems to do a lot better in the heat now.

    Sounds like she is hot.

    Also, you may want to take your caps off...it can be distracting and considered "yelling" on the forums. [​IMG]
