    I am really sorry to hear that [​IMG] unfortunately as I said I have never had chicks. I could only refer you to a similar problem. I am not a vet.

    Sorry about your chick [​IMG]I have never experienced something like that, but from what I know she may have died from brooder pneumonia, caused by aspergillus molds. This funagal infection is common in brooders made of plastic tolk boxes as moisture from spilt water etc is obtained. The chicks tend to gasp or 'choke' and act extremely lethargic. It commonly results in death. Good luck with the rest of your chooks.
