    Could be an EE. What kind of comb does it have? Are its legs green?

    My concern is why is its breasts lopsided and so big. It also so has trouble walking it more oe less waddles and is very different acting from our other chicks. it also spits up alot.
    Is it a broiler type? or just a over eater? it has markings different from our other EE's

    the bird have sour crop/ crop impaction... that's why it's drooling.

    does the drool smell foul? if it does, then you have sour crop, empty as much liquid as you can.

    Isolate the bird, keep it warm.

    Put it in a cage on it's own in a warm room.

    Sour crop can be caused by crop impaction (this is when food cannot pass from the crop to the gizzard), check is the crop hard...?

    while in isolation, don't feed it for a day, just water, see if the crop go down in size, if it doesn't, try massaging it and feed some cooking oil into the bird.

    if the crop size does not go down in a night, repeat the massage every few hours, no food until the crop is totally empty, just water.
