Limp Chicks, need advice.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Today, (May 8, 2016) one of our chicks (Australorp) went limp and can barely move. They have been able to drink water (with help) and eat some chick feed (with help). 

 

The chick is 3 days old, and currently warm, well fed, and non-dehydrated.

 

If there is any advice on what to do to help, please answer.

 

Thanks,

KCat and Jenni

If she makes it til tomorrow, see if you can't get your hands on a product called Poultry Nutri-drench and give her that by syringe or dropper if she still isn't drinking on her own. It has sugars, amino acids, and vitamins that may help. If that perks her up enough to eat, see about getting some probiotics such as ProBios powder to add to either the water or the feed. It will help her digestion as well as help her combat bad bacterial overgrowths and parasites such as coccidia.
