    I have a J.G. 4 mo. old that closes its eyes a lot. Then it raises it's head and opens it mouth real wide like it has something stuck in its throat or is gasping for air. Checked throat, nothing there, nostrils clear. All of the other chicks seem fine. This one eats and drinks but I am concerned it may have something contagious. Any ideas B.Y.C. experts ? [​IMG]
