    She is breathing hard and twisting her head every 30 seconds or so.she is alert and walking but not eating like rest of the chicks.she was seperated from the rest but she was not happy and crying all the time.now we let her run around the house and cary her around and she is very happy.It has been 6 days now and she does not seems to get any better.I hope that is not Newcastle disease.any idea?

    Sorry, I have no idea. I would keep her isolated from the other chicks. Sometimes chicks just fail to thrive.
