    My chicks are a week and a half old, and one of them looks like he's gagging. He's doing it frequently, and it sure doesn't look like a yawn. In there anything I should do? He doesn't look distressed.

    Right now he's drifting off to sleep...

    Could have a piece of shavings stuck in his throat of a larger piece of crumble. He'll probably get it swallowed okay.
