I'm a newbie here and we recently got 8 baby chicks. Two of them are Black Spanish hens, both of these ones are the ones who got sick. The first one got sick yesterday and died tonight. I noticed she was having trouble standing, wasn't eating or drinking water. Every time she would try to drink water she'd fall in. I noticed her gullet was swollen so I looked up some info on here and tried everything from gently massaging it to olive oil. She passed away about an hour ago.
I just went to clean out the brooder and noticed the other black Spanish hen acting feeble in the same way the other one was. I just looked at her and her gullet is extremely swollen, even worse than the other chicks was, and she's barely able to stand, won't eat, and won't drink water.
Any suggestions of what I should do? Can I save her?
