3-4 week old EE chick was walking around last night kept sticking its head up/extending its neck, openingits mouth, folding its tongue over, and "wheezing " on the exhale. wasnt really eating alot but was drinking, i thought respiratory so i hit with duramycin-10, but she was gone this morning, so now im thinking she ate something she shouldnt have and it got stuck somehwere. which does it sound like to you?
