So, they didn't have food all day til evening then they gorged themselves when you fed them. How old are they and what did you feed them?

They eat starter feed by pedagree and yes they did not eat that morning till the evening and then they just started to act like that I was very concerned and they should be about 1 mounth to couple weeks theres only 10 in the coop I feed them that night and I was not feeling good this morning so I just waited for a while and them once I felt a little better to get up oi went and feed them that evening and all this had happened and there also drinking a lot after they do the neck rolling?

Do they have access to grass.

I usually let them out and let them get a little bit then I put them back so they can get the warmth from the light but they had not access to grass today or yesterday

With our Silkies we chop up greens in tiny Silkie bite-sizes so the crop doesn't get impacted with long strands of greens.

Yeah it needs to be offered with some chick grit for sure. I had a few polish who got sick. We took them to the vet and she told us that grass is really good for them when they are under the weather. She said it's good for them to have access to grass as much as possible. I never knew this but try to make sure my chickens have access. smile.png
