Listless silkie chick, 2 weeks old

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What's best protocol for a listless chick?  I syringed h20 with vitamins and electrolytes along with a little bit of liquified food.  Just picked up save-a-chic probiotics. What else?  I am severely bummed I allowed a 2 week old to stray from his buddies and the warming apparati...he died alone cold in a corner..but now I am wondering if he was sick as well.  Anyway, back to little sort-of-alive chick. He is NOT wanting to hang out with his buddies and brooder surrogate.  Any advice greatly appreciated. thanks.

Does he have any other signs of a disease? Watery poops, runny nose, etc.? I would separate the listless one into a separate brooder to prevent the spread of disease, if indeed he is sick. Probiotics are always a great thing to boost their immune systems.
