    Quote:I'm confused-you said it's CROP has bubbly ooze-Is the chic foaming from the mouth? Crop is internal at bottom of esophagus-How can you see crop? Does this chic have a hole in its esophagus or is it bald over the crop? please clarify.
    Is the chic active, Is it peeping?

    I have never heard of anything like that. High humidity would indeed cause a sticky and thick membrane. But it would not make the chick have bubbly stuff coming out of it. Is the chick active? Acting normal? If any others hatch normal I would keep that one seperate. Incase it is something of an infectous disease. I am sorry I cant help more. I can not see what you are seeing. [​IMG]

    yeah i had noticed the crop thing after i got it out of the shell. well, the chick was wet, and so its kinda balled looking, the skin is kinda transparent because it just hatched, and yes you can see the crop, with any chicken, i masaged it and then got it to kinda upchuck the bubbles, afterwich i think it felt much better because now it is rooling aroiund peeping and trying to walk. so its looking better. im just concerened that my chicks are gonna get glued to the inside of their shells [​IMG]
