A few days ago, I posted about a chick that we believed had Wry Neck syndrome. It sadly passed away last night.
Now, we have another chick, whom is the same breed and came from the same place. It is about 3-4 weeks old, and it is CONSTANTLY falling asleep while it is standing up. We have begun feeding it (and the rest of the gang) vitamin e supplements and selenium through their water as a precaution for Wry Neck Syndrome, but its neck doesn't seem to be bothering it. It is just super tired. Sometimes, it kind of pants too. Its stools are normal, and its walking and balancing just fine. Are my husband and I overly worried because of our loss yesterday? Is it just a growing chick that needs sleep? If not, do you have any ideas of what is wrong? It's not Merik's Disease, or Coccidia. We just cannot figure out what else it might be. We've had trouble regulating the temperature in the brooder, but its not stretching out its swings or anything. Help?!?
