    I have a week old Brahma that us having some labored breathing, shaking her head. Still eating, pooping, haven't seen her drink much. She is with 3 more. She is roughly a week old. I heard that Emergen C works? Not sure on the dosage.

    Temp is good in the brooder, other chicks are fine.

    Any input/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    I know they can't all be saved...

    She could have swallowed some bigger solids like the beddings or so(possible shaking of head and labored breathing) happened to one of my chicks awhile ago luckily I saw a piece out I was able to pull out.
