    So I got 30 cornish babies,they are bout 3weeks old now and just starting to become featherd.Problem is respitory problems and I'm losing them,1 per week. The are being raised in a kiddie pool in shop w 2 heat lamps and hay and shavings and seem quite happy.But some of them are gurgly in their breathing and it freaks me out. Is there a way to treat them when I notcie them getting sick.I got one in my bedroom now and she is just sleeping and gasping for air and so warm!:[​IMG]

    Sounds like its too warm for them. At 3 weeks it should be 80 degrees with plenty of water.
