I bought 4 Silkie chicks last monday. They were a week old on saturday, and up until late saturday night they have been doing great. I found one of my chicks dead when I checked them before going to bed. All of the others seemed to be acting normal. Early Sunday afternoon I noticed one of them had been laying around a lot and when I nudged it, she just kind of flailed around. I got her to drink some and sat her down on her feet, she took a few steps but they were very wobbly like she couldn't support her weight. She laid back down. I kept checking back and in a matter of about 15 minutes she had gotten worse, I kept trying to get her to drink but she ended up dying in my hand. NOW another of the chicks are acting the same way. I tried mixing a little chick starter with some warm water and a touch of honey, but couldn't really get her to take any. She was very into the honey water and actually walked/stood around a little after she had drank some. But now shes still lying around. I really don't know what to do but I don't want to watch another one die!
Any suggestions on what this could be? Or how to help the other before she shows these symptoms as well?
