    Not sure what the exact problem is. She seems to be eating/drinking ok, but her poops are gray and watery, and she keeps craning her neck back and forth. Her butt is clean, no signs of breathing trouble or any swelling/discharge anywhere, but she definitely looks like she doesn't feel good! :( Any ideas?

    What kind of food is she eating?
    What is her behavior?

    They're all on chick starter from Agway and chick grit. She seems a little tired in the eyes and she keeps doing this weird "stretching" thing and craning her neck a lot. But, she's moving around fine and the others aren't bothering her.

    Maybe she has crooked neck. I have 1 chicken who has it. He always does a weird thing with his neck. But he is fine so maybe your chick will be fine too.
    As long as she eats, drinks and poops she will be fine.
    Does she have poop stuck to her butt? Just curious because that is a sign of sickness
