    K[​IMG] Subject says it all. I have a almost two week old tux, has an air pocket with fluid in it under skin above wing. Not sure what to do, i can easily pop it with a needle. Nothing wrong with the bird other than that will try and get a good photo:cool:

    Just some fluid retention, you can pop it and it should be fine.

    It seems to have gone away for the most part, if it comes back I will pop. Thanks all

    did it hatch with it? I've had budgie chicks hatch with fluid filled pockets on the neck, supposedly caused by bacteria.[​IMG]

    I found one of my breeder hens with what sounds
    Like the same thing yesterday. Found a needle and went to go take care of it after have seen this post and it was gone. I put her in a solo pen just to monitor her.
