air in food sac of baby goulds

I have two babies being fostered by some society's.they are 10 days old now and I noticed one baby is grossly swollen in what appears to be the food sac. I am feeding them millet seed, regular seed,pkg egg food ,dried greens, and for a short time some brown rice. I stopped feeding the rice thinking it might be the problem.it is a little better,but not much .any help would be appreciated.Thank you. Corey


I find the computer is again working. Adding some cooked moist eggs to some of the dry egg food may help and adding some fresh greens like Romaine lettuce may increase their fluids. I have had chicks with air in their crops and mine always resolved their own problem. I hope this will be the case with yours. Best Wishes.
