    one of the chicks that i hatched about two weeks ago recently started acting different. i picked it up and i noticed that it had what felt like a big air bubble in his naval area. i have no clue what this could mean. help please!

    Do you have a feed store nearby? Maybe they can help. I hope it is ok.
