    Hi guys,
    My first batch of chicks are thriving-they're so cute! But I'm concerned about the second batch. Two of the three day old Marans are fine, but the third continuously sticks his head in the air and makes a swallowing motion, even when lying down! I have tried massaging his throat and crop, but it didn't seem to do anything. I could really use some help!
    Thanks, Seachickens13
