    That is not a healthy noise. Look up gapeworm. Not just on byc but all over the web and see what you come up with. I don't have the noise going on, but I do have the gape right now. Treating right this second with safeguard

    Safer than sorry, pull the sneezer and monitor him. Give me a sec and I'll post a first crow of mine, it doesn't look like that at all to me. I could be wrong tho.

    Me too... Use the search in the upper right corner here and look up wieners for chickens. So far a lot if people go with pea sized drop of safeguard per bird on a small piece of bread.
