    Does it sound like a respiratory issue? Or a weird chirp?

    I have had more than just a few chicks with that and they all turned out to be ok. I questioned it too and was told it was normal.

    I was alarmed when I first heard my chicks "crackle". I think it is the grit in their crops. They've been doing that for three weeks now, and have been growing like little weeds, so it seems to be normal. Could this be what you are hearing?
