    Ok so my situation is my boyfriend slipped one last egg under a broody during fall season...my broody sat and did her job but then when it hatched she got aggressive towards the chick so I had to take the chick inside. I think the chick got chilled at some point and has a slight cold. She shows no other signs of sickness ...she has energy, eats n drinks well..poops well also. I have had her in a heating pad laying with me in a feather boa and then when she eats n drinks the heating pad goes in the basket. I donot think this is a situation from illness because all my birds are healthy so what should I do?

    If the chick is sneezing it might have infectious bronchitis. Give the chick some apple cider vinegar, I used it and it worked. Also, the hen might have attacked the chick because she didn't see it as hers, she saw the chick as a threat, she was just protecting her other chicks.

    Hope this Helps.
