Hi! I went down to the chicken pen and I noticed that the beaks on all of my chickens were varying shades of black! It was fairly mild on the hens and the one roster, but the beaks on my month old babies were totally black! Every once in a while, the baby's would cough as though chokeing, and their throats or croup looked swollen. They were choking down adult food as fast a they could, even though they have baby food in there own feeder. What is wrong?
