my chick has a huge gas buildup under his skin from his chest righ tup to his head. it is definitely some kind of gas or air buildup. i left for two days and came back and he had bad poopy butt. i think the gas buildup from that somehow caused this. he was raised outside with broodies and is over a month old. i cleaned off his poopy butt yesterday after finding him and he has pooped normally since. his neck is completely full of gas, it is really weird to see i wish i could find my camera. he keeps his neck on his back and hasnt eaten or drank on his own. my only idea is to gently pop the bubble with a safety pin. what else can i do? we will have to cull him tomorrow if he does not show any improvement and i dont see how the gas would disapear on its own?? i tried antacid, but it did not work. the gas is not IN his intestines, it is UNDER his skin. i am continuing to give him some anti gas but i dont think it will have any effect. what can i possibly do, i am at my wits end. please someone, please tell me if you have heard of this or what you would do??? it is some kind of air buildup and you can see it, the skin is paper thin around the sides of his ches tnear his neck because of how stretched out it is. you cant see it in his neck but his neck is huge and you can feel the air underneath it b ut u cant see it cuz the skin is thicker. it is so messed up.
