    i have a very young chick that keeps opening her mouth to breathe and stretching her neck out like she's trying to swallow. Yesterday she kept shaking her head and scratching her neck with her legs. I think she has something stuck in her throat. What can I do?
     

  2. Open her mouth with your fingers and have a look, you would be surprise what you may find
