    I have a 3 week old Brahma that got sick all of a sudden??? Last night I checked on them at midnight and everything seamed fine. This morning I got up and she is laying on her side and can not stand. :( I checked her vent and everything seams fine there. There are no obvious signs of what is going on. We are new to chickens and are so worried about her. I don't know what to do. Please help!

    Sounds like coccidia. I recommend you purchase Corid 9.6% liquid solution and give it to your chicks to drink. Dosage is 9.5cc's per gallon of water for 5 days, you can add it to your waterers from the 1 gallon mixture. Dont add anything else into the mixture. Corid can be found in the cattle section at your feed store.
