    Texas Hill Country!
    I have a 4 week old chick (one out of 13) that has a runny nose and seems to be week and shivering. It did drop to freezing last night but it was in the coop with a light and it's momma. Seems to be pooping and eating and drinking as far as I could tell. I brought it inside and have it trying to get it warm but it feels warm. Can a vet help her? is she doomed? Please help! any advice would be wonderful! thanks!

    Maybe a virus or infection of some sort? You could take her to an avian vet. Maybe it would help if momma and chicks came inside for a while?
    Hope she's OK!
