    how treat chick's nasal congestion?
    he breathes hard and doesn't chirp correctly. I looked at his noise, I think feed seeds are blocked in !

    Wipe the nostrils gently with warm water using a Q-tip / kitchen towel (squeezing a little water over the nostrils as you wipe). If you can actually see something stuck in there and you are feeling brave, then a toothpick could work (at least thats what i recall reading here).
