    Please help! we recently got a new batch of chicks and one of them started breathing heavy and wheezing today [​IMG] She is still eating and running around with the two others but her breathing seems painful! We raise our chickens as pets so I will be very upset if something happens to her [​IMG]

    Ok - guess lots of members will be tucked up in bed. You can give your chicks either vitamin supplements / electrolytes in their drinking water for the time being. They will help give their immune systems a boost.

    You'll get some help a little later in the day, I'm sure.

    Good luck
