    syble Chillin' With My Peeps

    Jan 10, 2011
    I recently went through a batch of chicks (in my house in proximity to my incubator) that had what we were fairly sure was infectious bronchitis. they were put down friday, and i have a batch of chicks hatching from that incubator today. i see them swallowing like they are drinking... no sneezing... I don't remember if this is normal freshly hatched chick behaviour, or if its a sign that somehow the eggs gor infected? help!
