    i just noticed that my chicks are breathing differently. they are almost 6 weeks old.
    they were hatched under broody hen and are with her.
    when they breath the underside of thier wattles (throat) and the area between eye and beak inflates and then return to normal and then agian this process repeats.
    I have highlighted the areas under discussion in the pic below

    is this something of concern ?
