With or without flip-flops, 60 birds over 2 days is a lot of work, Ralphie. Glad you got it done and see have 6 meatballs running around to enjoy.
My one runty CX is still just about the same and I'm a bit mystified and torn about what to do. I'm now thinking there is something developmentally wrong with it, rather than an illness. I examined it again closely yesterday. It is about 1/2 the size of the others, but it's legs are 1/4 the size and thickness. They are tiny, spindly things. It's body temperature is very cold for a CX and it almost looked blue under the wings. I dribbled some sugar water into its beak yesterday and than plunked it down under a heat lamp with mash and crushed meal worms placed right in front of it. It didn't seem to change anything.
It can still walk well enough, and seems to be drinking normally, but just has no energy and is eating very little. The condition has been pretty much the same for the last few days. At times it will perk up a bit and move around or peck the ground, but most of the time is just sits or stands in the corner, sometimes with its eyes shut. It's wings are bit droopy. It's poo is mostly liquid but normal in color. No wheezing, sneezing or discharge. I could see no evidence of parasite. The rest of the flock is bursting with energy. They are roosting in the bushes, the roosters are bumping chests and they are the healthiest looking and most lively batch I have had thus far.
After a day in the hospital, and seeing no overt signs of illness, I put it with the rest last night. She/he went out into the yard with the flock this morning on its own volition. I'm trying to decide whether to cull it as it's quality of life seems so much less than the rest, or just let it live with the flock for a couple more days to see what will happen. I kind of doubt it's ever going to get big enough to process.
