    I'm worried about him, he seems to be gasping for breath... is there anything I can do to help him.

    I pulled him out of the brooder, and put him back into the incubator...

    But he just lays around and his beak opens and closes... not like he is panting, but like he is having a hard time breathing....

    Everyone else seems alright....

    he is 3 days old, I just put him and his siblings in the brooder yesterday.

    he died but in the incubator a new white baby hatched. the one that died was black. I named the white one pheniox.
