    so, every time i pick up one of my chicks, he "runs" in mid air.

    when he moves his legs, it makes sort of a "took" noise
    LOL

    if you can make that a sound

    and maybe like something is sloshing around??

    it almost sounds like his bones rubbing together or something in his stomach,
    i don't know

    what is it?

    ??????

    Are you feeding chick starter only or are you giving him something else?[​IMG]

    lol

    i know it sounds weird!

    i can't describe it!

    he is on medicated chick starter, and he is the only one that makes the noise.

    it almost sounds like his tummy is hollow or something...

    maybe i am being paranoid

    If he's acting healthy in all other ways, it could just be his own unique noise - several of my birds have funny little sounds that I only hear from them. [​IMG]

    so true about the unique sounds. my chicks are only 5 days old but I can tell already which one is talking by it's sound. One of them "trills" like my canary!
