    Hello. I'm a newbie to raising chickens. I have 3 baby reds right now that are about 3 weeks old. The smallest one (I think it is the runt) acts very odd. I don't know if he is sick or has mites?? He breathes heavy and twitches his head lots. He eats, drinks and loves to get rubs! I'm attaching pics. I also did notice some white crust above his beak...You can kind of see it in the pic although my cell doesn't take clear pics.
    [​IMG][/IMG] The other 2 seem perfectly fine. Not sure of the sex of the chicks either. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Here is another picture: [​IMG]

    Also does anyone know how to upload a video? I have a video showing what the chick does which I'm sure would help a lot to see.
