i recently visited the local tractor supply buying supplies. anyways i walked by and saw they had chicks. well needless to say they werent in great condition (moist shavings, lost stomach feathers, irritated). anyways seems the kids at night are responsible for thier care. i felt sorry for the poor little buggers. i talked to the m,anager and he gave them to me half off. anyways got them home and in fresh dry shavings have them under a red lamp instead of a clear light like they had(it amazes me how they hire people there who know nothing about agriculture or animal care.). im also giving them red cell mineral and terramycin just to be safe. anyways my question is. was outside with them earlier and i could hear them breathing. it sounded like a soft click like a small bubble bursting. makes me imagine little mucus filled lungs, i might record a video of it. is there anyone out there who knows what it might be. am i doing the right thing in my rehabbing of the little forsaken birds. btw they are st run cornish rocks from ideal.
