It's very hard to take a video because he suddenly flaps his wings in order to breath and become unconscious ..I believe it's aspiration pneumonia
What does that mean?
It’s not a disease...it’s a blockage.
I would recommend putting the poor thing out of its misery at this point if you don’t know how to/can’t help it.

Oh, @Saaniya I'm so sad for this chick. I'm sad for you.

I think the sweater you used for bedding may have caused the problem. The fine fibers on a knit sweater are loose, and baby chicks naturlly peck at their bedding instinctively searching for grit and food. Find fibers can clog the trachea and even get into the lungs.

This is something almost no one will think of when caring for a baby chick until something happens like this. I don't think there was anything you could do to save this chick.

This chick may have had another problem, and the bedding had nothing to do with it, but to be safe, you need to remove the sweater and find a better bedding.

Your words always very much reliving and make me feel Understand the issue ..I believe the same same he's all fine all happy active not seems sick Until yesterday evening ..he scream so loud and when I check he's shaking head , rolling backwards making horrifying noises like a Seizure and then his beak become locked my small muchkin didn't even eat one piece of food or water he just unable to swallow or take the food down if I place it in his beak he was just 39 days old . I rescued he and his brother on 12th December 2020 , he's my fav because of his sweet nature he stay with me play with my bracelet ..but yesterday he becomes all quite , loss voice and beak only having saliva

This morning he face alot of seizures and then god ease his journey and take his soul on a new world without pain and struggle

I can't believe he's gone because I'm not so strong person I am very much attached emotionally I feel his pain and struggle he's a pure lil angel

Please try to lose the guilt. Just focus on having had the joy of the sweet little guy for a little while. Some lives are short, very short. Once I held a friends newborn baby while a nurse took blood from its tiny foot for a leukemia test. The baby wasn't even a month old when it died. We celebrate short lives as we do long ones. Duration of life means nothing, only that a little being had one and was loved.
