    I have 10 chicks about 2 weeks old, Tonight when we were doing our last rounds we noticed almost all of them have a fluid filled growth on there lower necks/upper chest. What could it be and what can I do to fix it? I really don't want them to die especially if it will be slow.We are trying apple cider vinegar case its the crop.

    Are you sure it is not their crops? The crop expands after eating all day,and will empty overnight,check them in the morning before eating it should be empty.

    Note: if eating anything other than chick feed,then need grit to digest food.

    Yep...just sounds like their crops are full. No worries.
