    ... so kind of hard to explain, but I have a little 2 day old chic that started this odd breathing today. Just lays down and rhythmically breathes with mouth open?? Not like panting but like a slower breathe? Any idea what this means? I assume shortness of breath? Maybe lung development issues?

    Well... just as I suspected.. ended up dying... I do think it just didn’t develop internally correctly... maybe lung issues
