I posted this under the incubating thread but thought I could get some advice on this thread. I have a day old chick that all of the sudden is having trouble. Opening and closing her beak like she's having trouble breathing. She can still move around and chirp but just went into a corner and was getting walked all over so I took her out and put her in my top. I tried feeding her some scrambled eggs and almost acts like she can't swallow. I'm thinking she might have a shaving particle stuck in there so I coated a little piece of egg with olive oil and washed it down. Is there anything else I can do? Does anyone know of what size of a small tubing I could push down the throat to dislodge it, if it is a shaving? I know years ago I had a bird I had to tube feed but it's been a lifetime ago so I can't remember what I used or if that would be safe in this situation. She's happily nestled in my shirt but still opening and closing her mouth. I don't want to lose her. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
