    Need to know more. What type of bedding is it on? Perhaps the shavings are too dusty? Any other symptoms?

    More specific. Cedar shavings will cause respiratory problems. Really fresh dusty pine shavings also will. What kind are the shavings and where did you get them? How old are the chicks? What kind of brooder do you have them in?
