    Please help! we recently got a new batch of chicks and one of them started breathing heavy and wheezing today:/ She is still eating and running around with the two others but her breathing seems painful! We raise our chickens as pets so I will be very upset if something happens to her:( Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated!

    I was told that she may have swallowed a wood chip? If that's the case is there anything I can do?:( I also added ACV to their water recently and she seems to be a bit better

    @Wyorp Rock thank you for replying!! She's doing much better now, I believe she was allergic to the pine shavings so I switched it up and she's pretty much back to normal:)

    Good move.
    Sometimes a combination of dusty bedding, dusty feed, dusty chicks and possibly not enough ventilation can cause sneezing.
    I'm glad to hear she is doing much better, she's adorable.
