Please help me I have recently aquired a cross beaked chick and he's now about a month old he's a americauna or Easter egger. Just starting this month and now going into fall and winter he's gotten really nasally sounding and very sneezing like he needs to blow his nose. I've been giving him vitamins everyday and mush food that's watered down but not ever any water I guess maybe push the fluids like humans should to thin out the snot? Idk what to do he's eating really good though.

Can you post some photos?

Are you tubing/syringing the wet feed or can it eat on it's own?
Does the chick have mucous coming from the nostrils?
How long have you had him?

I can post a few pictures. He does eat on his own as long as the food bowl is deep and its the right consistency. No mucous from the nose or eyes but when he sneezes sometimes it flies out.

He eats on his own so long as the bowl is deep and the food is the right consistency. I've had him for almost a month now and he was only a week or is old when I got him. No mucous from the nose or mouth or eyes except when he sneezes sometimes fluid comes out. I will post some pics.

Looks to be an EE pullet with a severe cross beak. Is the mush you make more soupy than oatmeal consistency? I'm thinking it's getting liquid going down the wrong pipe as it eats. Just guessing here ... Those tagged will be able to help you better.

I was thinking it might be that but its more like clumpy than soupy. Once in a while its soupy.

I gave him a syringe and a half of vitamins, electrolytes, and oregano oil. I hope he pulls through I never noticed how bad it got because he's constantly moving and peeping but its when he's not and i lay down with him I hear him wheezing and the chest rattling.
