    I bought my chick from tractor supply and noticed she had a red bump on her foot. Yesterday she started limping today she is limping and laying down only walking short distances and breathing heavily . Just a little while ago I checked on her and she's now gasping for air. Everything is closed and I don't know what to do to help her some one please help me. [​IMG]

    She may have injured the toe in her brooder.There is not much treatment for a broken toe. Hopefully she is not suffering from a common respiratory disease. I would watch her breathing and consider using some antibiotics on her if she continues gasping.

    Sorry for your loss. I would watch the others to make sure they are active, alert, eating, and drinking.
