Just got some cornish crosses in the mail today, so they are about 2 day olds. I noticed a couple of them are slobbering? Long string of slobber too. They have water and feed and seem to be doing well. The other chicks I received aren't doing it, at least not yet. Anyone know why they're doing that and if they'll be okay?

There was another post about a chick drooling, and one of the posts suggested there might be too much salt in the water. (The suggested post had overly salty water and I think a duck that was slobbering and it stopped after she gave it bottled water to drink)

So maybe test the water and see if it's too salty? :x I hope everything turns out alright!
