I have a silkie who keeps opening his mouth, I’m a new chicken Mom. I’m concerned about him. He opens his mouth and he does this when I pick him up or he’s in my lap .
Thank you all for you’re help
Is this your only chicken? If not, is this the only one that's doing it? When you say he opens his mouth, do you mean he keeps it open, like he's panting? Or does he stretch it open big like a yawn and then shut it? Does he only do it when you hold him or he's on your lap, or all the time, even when he's walking about?
What do you feed him? How old is he? Can you post a video to YouTube or someplace similar and then post the link here? Thanks.
