2 week old easter egger can't stand all of a sudden - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I ended up putting the mine in a jolly jumped type sling made of panty hose. It seems to be doing much better. I have to feed and water it but it's only been a day and it seems to be getting stronger.

That looks very nice, and you could even lower it or put something under it's feet to touch the ground. How about a little table or shoebox in front of it with food and water set on top, so it can eat whenever it wants? One of those double dishes from kittens would also work, set up a few inches. I love to see people's inventions.

the other 3 chicks did not die.  Only 1 other one did.  I still have 2 healthy baby chicks.

but for me, the original poster, I'm still having troubles.  And now one of my other chicks' feet is curling under, and she is limping around on one leg...  I just don't know how to deal with this.

It's only been a few days, so I'm really hoping it is a riboflavin deficiency. What feed do you use, and is it pretty fresh (in case the vitamins have weakened.) Were the chickens vaccinated for Mareks disease? Have any chickens been added to the flock in the last month or more?
