    PLEASE HELP! Since last night, one of my little 4 day old chicks has been having problems breathing. It sounds almost like she has a sinus infection. She will streach her neck out and open her mouth and let out a little nasaly snot-like noise. Almost like she has liquid in her lungs?

    She does peep, but not all that often. I went to bed hoping it would go away, but it hasnt so far.

    Please help!
