Eating & Drinking, but Shakes and has Diarrhea, Please Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have had my Bantam Silkie Chick (Salt) for about a week now and I have noticed that when I pick her up she shakes, also she has diarrhea. I cannot see her shake when she is in the brooder, I can only feel it when I hold her. The only reason I can't figure out what is wrong is that she is still eating and drinking, and definitely growing. This is my first time having chickens, please help.

Welcome to BYC!

 

Can you post a video?

Shaking while being held may just be a little nervousness.

Also could be a neurological/developmental disorder.

You can add some vitamins to their water to see if there is any improvement.
