Hi I'm new to the website and owning chickens. I do have experience with birds and animals, on my own and as a biologist park ranger. I have two chicks currently with issues. A two week old is currently under a light and in a brooder with a Americana. I got both at the same time last week, they were at a chicken farm and both looked pretty rough. The Americana snapped back immediately and became a big puff ball. The Barred is still looking weak, listless, vent was dirty today. I cleaned her up, but she is still acting funny, while the other one is sitting sleeping, she is standing with wings hanging down. She doesn't look happy. She is on starter and is outside a little everyday. Now my second issue is even more sketchy. We had a good health, happy flock, raised since babies, moved them outside to their coop and had a random bear attack, that left us with two survivors. One being "Itsy Bitsy", she was another farm rough one that my four year old loved and the farm gave to us for no charge. She never looked right, but I was hoping she would plump up and feather out. Now she is chirping all the time, I think she is traumatized from the bear attack. Still looks rough, missing feathers on wing and neck area, could be new feathers still in cuticle, but sketchy, and her crop never fills up like the others. I have been trying to feed her some scrambled egg to get some weight on her, but she only she interested in what the other survivor is doing or eating. She eating starter still and free ranged all day. I have been trying to feed her extra, but results not impressive. Anyway this is a good site and I have already found some good information, thanks.
