Good evening!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi my name is Rebecca.
I'm looking for any information on a sick 3 week old chick. She tucks her head, and falls over, and does a summersault. She eats, and drinks. I'm not sure what happened to her. I have my first flock of 31 chicks, and this is the only one that is behaving this way. I have separated her, given her electrolytes, and probiotics, medicated feed. Not sure what to do. I don't know if she will survive.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Alright Rebecca, :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

Alright make sure the rest of the chicks get the same and slow down on the meds as your chick is very small and fragile :)

 

 

Give all of them a hard boiled egg this has everything a body needs :clap

Hi Rebecca and welcome to BYC. I would suggest reposting your question on the "Emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" forum.

 

All the best

If would be good if you post photos of how the  chick  stands or  pulls her head in   when you post on the ER thread.  You can see her clearly, they cannot  - so every detail will be of help to them.

:welcome

 

Sorry to hear you have a chick with problems...CTKen is right, head on over to the emergencies forum and give them all the details you can. Hopefully, they will be able to help you get your chick back on the road to healthy.

 

Good luck!
