Thread Starter 
We are newbies and we have got our first three Rhode Island Reds , My wife named them all already and we have definitely taken a liking to them/ were pet people, so it's definitely not a good day when one isn't looking too happy . Goldie our runt hasn't bin looking to hot. I just recently finished a new coop for them And brought them out of the garage to see they're new home while I change they're bedding and this is what poor Goldie has bin doing all day. I've bin reading and her comb definitely isn't as bright or pronounced as the other 2, No watery eyes or sneezing, oh and she never sticks her neck out either, if that means anything? any ideas? Thanks

Go get some Corid in the cattle section of your feed store and start all of your pullets on it in case of coccidiosis. She has that puffed up or hunched look that is common in young chickens. Other symptoms are diarrhea possibly with blood, not eating, and sleepiness. Corid dosage is 2 tsp of the liquid, or 1.5 tsp of the powder, per gallon of water given for 5 days. Afterward some poultry vitamins and a bit of plain yogurt or probiotics will help get them back on track.
