Thread Starter 
Need advice. My 4 month old baby Wyandotte is extremely skinny and feathers stays puffed put all the time. Her (im assuming a girl) face is real pale, but not sure if that because shes sick or just not old enough to lay an egg. Ehat could be wrong eith her, and what could i do to help her.

Well first of all you should quarantine any sick chicks so that it doesn't infect your other birds.  If it's not thriving then something is obviously wrong.  The times my chicks have puffed out they have had Coccidosis......generally I avoid this by feeding medicated scratch when they are first born for a couple of weeks.  I would imagine it has either recovered or died by now.  Try the medicated feed in your hatchlings to avoid recurrence.
