    Help chick struggling
    I have a chick that staggers keeps opening it's mouth making no sound. Occasionally it squeaks then stands and falls down. Breathing so hard his entire body moves. Any ideas? When he does stand he Lso flaps his wings. He is a week and a half old Buckeye chick.

    He recently pooped normal and calmed some but very lethargic.
