    How do you tell if your chicks have air sac infections?

    do you mean injury, or infection?
    if the air sac is injured..it swells up..(in the neck/breast area)

    (might be mistaken for impacted crop)

    what are the symptoms of the chick?
    could it be the crop?
    is the chick eating?
    please be detailed.

    Actually they seem fine to me. I sold some chicks to a girl Thursday. We put them in a cage so we wouldnt have to chase them when she got here. 2 of them got sick acting so we took them out. They died on the way home to her house. She said they had air sac infections. I had no idea what she was talking about. She acted like I needed to treat the whole flock. They are all fine. They dont act sick or anything. I was afraid I missed something!! The 2 she took were either too hot or stressed. Thats what I think!!
