Hey, all. I posted yesterday in a different thread about a sick EE chick of mine. We noticed yesterday that she didn't go into the run with her sisters and when I looked in, she was sitting all puffed out and doing this thing where she extends her neck and opens her beak wide. She looked worse when I came home from work. We have her separated. She looks better and worse this morning- more alert (not so sleepy/lethargic) but her toes are now curled and she can't stand without falling.
I saw her eat last night but have not seen her drink. I want to go get anything I can to help her, but not sure what to get without knowing what's wrong? (I read for hours last night and just couldn't perfectly fit all her symptoms to anything.)
I have apple cider vinegar that I can add to her water. What else would you recommend for a very sick chick? Antibiotics? Medicated feed? I've heard of electrolyte packets and all kinds of things, but not sure what's best! And I don't want to overwhelm her system. Any advice??
You can see a video from yesterday morning (she looks considerably worse today) & more info on my other thread:
