Sick chick - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I have a polish chick, when I went out to feed this morning she was asleep alone with a pile of poop on her head I felt bad for and whipped it off and when I set her back down she just sort of teetered back and forth and fell down and fell asleep I wasn't sure if he was just tired or if he wasn't feeling well, in the past they all slept around the same time and when I beauty her inside so she could sleep and I thought she would be more alert but she just layed down and fell asleep

That sounds really similar to how my two that died were acting sad.png they were so lethargic. I made sure to keep them hydrated, but they were still so weak, and they eventually died. I treated my remaining one with nutridrench.

Hope your chick is getting better! I had a chick that was weak and sitting back on its legs like you described. I tried a lot of things and finally realized it could be a vitamin b deficiency, since that makes the chick wobble around like that. I bought some Durvet Performance Poultry since it contains Riboflavin (vitamin b). Within a day the chick was starting to stand up and by day 2 she was just like normal. Good luck!
