    I HAVE 24 JUMBOS AND LAST NIGHT I NOTICED THAT ONE OF THEM IS EXTENDING ITS NECK UP AND OPENING ITS MOUTH OVER AND OVER AND OVER. ITS KIND OF HOW THEY LOOK WHEN THEY DRINK BUT IT JUST DOESN'T EVER STOP. EVEN WHEN ITS SLEEPING!!! I'VE BEEN GIVING IT WATER AND IT SEEMS TO HAVE A LITTLE ENERGY, IT IS STILL STANDING BUT DOESN'T MOVE AROUND MUCH. WHAT COULD BE WRONG? IT ALSO IS MY SMALLEST CHICKEN BUT VERY HEALTHY LOOKING.

    check inside his mouth to see if he is chocking because some times they eat to fast also.

    Hope he is ok,
