They seem to be breathing really hard is that normal for them to do
What is the temperature? If you have the light too hot or close to them then it would cause heavy breathing.
Thank you @JadedPhoenix
You have some good advice - just increase the distance between the light / heat source and the chicks. As long as they do not begin to huddle together under the light / heat source then they are fine. I'm thinking that what you are seeing is the chicks opening their beaks to try and cool down, rather than struggling to breathe.
