I posted on the "emergencies..." board, but wanted to put a "feeler" in this room. My 6 day old chick is making gagging motions and sticking her neck out, but not chirping. There's a video of her on the other board. Pooping, drinking, eating fine. Crop is about the same as the other chicks' as far as size and squishiness. Any ideas??
Thanks!

Every chick I had ever know had done this... I always assumed it was the chicks way of yawning, but obviously if every chick I have had did it, it wasn't a serious problem.

Mine was doing it yesterday too. I was nervous but kept a close eye on him. Was acting normally and he just stopped after a bit. It was scary though. Looked like he had something stuck in his throat the way he was acting but he's not doing it anymore.
