    Hi all.
    I just recently got 8 rhode island red chicks from a Tractor Supply.
    They all seem to be doing really well,but one is worrying me a bit.
    I've named her Shadow,she's the smallest.
    The problem I've noticed is that her breathing sometimes seems weird.
    The only thing I can describe it as is "rickity".
    It sounds like creaking wood really....
    I'm not sure if this is a problem,but she seems to be eating/drinking/sleeping just fine.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thank you!! :)

    I agree, that really doesn't sound right, but I have no idea what it could be....sorry. Did you try calling Tractor Supply? Maybe someone there would be able to help. Hope she's ok!
