    I ordered 30 new brown layers about a month ago from mcmurray and three died the first day. Since then they have been doing great. Today I woke up and my wyandotte is sick. No pasty butt but wont stand up and just lays there. The chicks were vaccinated for mareks and cocci when I bought them. She wont eat or drink? Eyes are wide open and she chirps when I pick her up and hold her. The bedding (pine shavings)is changed every 4-5 days. Any ideas?

    I also change the water daily and it has their quick chick added as well as a.s vinegar. Fresh water, clean food, and clean bedding and I dont know what else to do. They are in my garage with a heat lamp and the door is open often for fresh air. Thanks.

    Did you try any electrolytes or yogurt or anything different? I have not tried these yet but I heard they could help, I also heard that sugar water encourages them to drink. how long after your post did she die? Ours started acting this way last night.
