    Does she act sick....or sound sick? If she doesn't act sick, I'd give her some vitamins and electrolytes and keep her warm. If she is acting sick, you may want to consider anitbiotic

    I think your first step should be changing your subject line to almost ANYTHING except a line of question marks. Might help you get some more answers. [​IMG]

    I agree, a different subject line would be helpful.

    Sorry, but to help we all need more information. The link below will help you organize your questions. Meanwhile, the first thing to do is separate you chicken from the others, keep it warm and supply food and water. If it is sick, you want to quarantine asap. And yes, the subject line is way too vague- this was an issue addressed just yesterday, so please try to put it to words. Thanks!
