    Has anyone ever had a chick make a soft whistling noise when it breathes? This one seems to be stumbling around a bit more. I'm concerned compared to the other chicks it's not going to make it. It kind of sounds like a squeaky pet toy. It is a silkie mix. It is not as energetic as the other chicks, and isn't as interested in the food and water. I"ve named 'him' Whistler for now. Experiences anyone?

    keep dipping it's beak in the water.

    It has a better chance if it's hydrated.
