  2. Proper HEAT, WATER, STARTER FEED and a DRAFT FREE area is about all you can do for chicks. If you want you can put a little sugar in the water to give them a little energy boost. Don't panick, it'll all work out.

    Wish ya the best.

    Popping and crinkling noises when they breathe and vocalize are indicative of air sac issues. These birds should not have come from a hatchery with respiratory problems. Could it be something they are picking up once they get to you since you report this has been a problem in the past? Where are they being housed? And what are their conditions like? What bedding is in use? Is the bedding old or moldy or excessively dusty? The major causes of airsaculitis are either disease (all pretty much non-treatable unfortunately) or exposure to mold/toxins (totally able to be fixed) . Are these birds being housed in the same brooder used by sick birds in the past? Are they in a place where mold is a problem? Any fumes from machinery? I'm grasping at straws here, but I would like to help you solve this mystery.

    How old are they? Have you considered Coccidiosis as the possible cause?
