    My chick was eating and then suddenly began panicking, chirping frantically and throwing itself on the ground while scratching at it's head. She will stop and lay with her beak on the ground and then start over again. It has been about 30 mins now and she isn't getting better. I have tried looking in her little mouth, feeling and rubbing her throat down to crop and giving her water with a dropper with no success. I even checked her ears to see if she had something stuck in one. She also will make a yawning gesture. She is only 3 days old. Any ideas or help please and thank you?!?
