    I have a chick that hatched this morning that has air stuck in its crop. It's acting like it keeps trying to swallow, so i don't know if it's trying to get the air to come up or if maybe it has a bit of something stuck in its throat. Will the air resolve itself, or do I need to do something for the chick?

    Great question, I certainly hope someone answers you. Have you looked up or searched for anyone else with the problem?
