Sick Chicken

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a young chicken, 2.5 month old, that I noticed bedded down in the hay and wouldn't walk yesterday. I put him in a clean box with water and some feed, with some natural supplements in the water and feed. I noticed this morning that he has not pooped, so I cleaned his back side and just waiting to see if he gets better. Not sure what's going on with him, but the other chicks are doing fine. Any ideas, suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

So he has diarrhea?

If so, have a fecal sample read.

No, he's not pooping at all.

You said you cleaned his backside.

 

Have you tried probiotics? That usually gets the digestive tract corrected.

This webpage keeps crashing on me . . .

 

Yes, I gave him/her a warm sit bath, also I put apple cider vinegar, high potency nutrient drench, and pro-biotics in it's drinking water. It is drinking a little bit, still no droppings that I can see.
