Yes same chick as that post her breathing is not as bad as that day but she is still breathing hard and no she wasn’t the one that had wry neck he’s improved but I’m still treating him the the vitamin e
OK I thought she had stopped that weird breathing according the other thread.
hmmm....is her crop emptying overnight?
What does her poop look like?

Is she able eating/drinking on her own?

Do you happen to have a video of how she sounds now?

I would just keep watch on her for a few days to see if she improves on her own.
If you don't have chick grit available free choice in your brooder, I would put some in there since she's eating a bit of bedding. I like to make that available first thing for my babies.

Being in a plastic container, how much ventilation do you have in there?

I’ll try that she was eating a piece of egg that was just a small tub I have her in to take the picture the brooder is plastic but it’s about 3 feet long x2 feet wide
