Tired chick

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
One of my chicks is really tired and lethargic she/he is just laying around and closing her eyes. She/he fells really lifeless when you pick her up. I think it may be coccidiosis but I'm not sure please help!!!

I am not a expert on diseases but separate the chick until you know what is wrong, you dont want the rest of them to catch whatever it is!

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

How old is the chick? Do you have any vitamins with electrolytes, Pedialyte, Or Gatorade that you can feed her? Is she hunched or puffed up, or having diarrhea or blood in the poop? Can you get some Corid (amprollium, Ampromed) from your feed store today? Coccidiosis can be very common in chickens 3-20 weeks old. If she is younger than that she could be dehydrated. Here is a good link tor read about cocci:
