Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me help my baby chick. It is constantly heavily breathing/gasping for air. I don't know how to help it breathe normally again, and I feel rushed because I fear it might pass away. Please Help!

Show a pic of your brooder set up, please.
Video of chick would really help, up load to youtube or vimeo and then link here.

What is the temp(use a thermometer) on the floor under the lamp....
....and then at the far end of the brooder away from the lamp?

Were these chicks hatched by you, or purchased at a store or...?
What all, and how, exactly are you feeding them?

Have you been checking their butts for pasting?
