    I just noticed a 4-6wk chick has hickups or something. She makes a very faint peep constantly, eyes closed when she was in with everyone else, open and bright when I picked her up. She seemed cold, brought her into the house under a lamp. Nose looks clogged from within, but nothing sticking out, nothing in her mouth. What the heck?!!

    Gave her some meds for respirator illness, she is under a heat lamp and has quieted down some. Never had a chick with any breathing issues, so I freaked a bit. Hoping none of the others she was with catch it. Will keep you guys posted.

    I've opened her beak and looked in, looked clear,but her nose a little clogged.
