    She has pasty butt (I have cleaned her up though, and I might add I am new to this) and she is smaller than the other 2 that are with her in her cage. She will stand up and chirp but she just lays back down and goes to sleep immediately.. Is this normal? I don't want to lose another chick because I lost one last night and it broke my heart.
    She is a bantam chick and she is tiny. as in my big toe is almost as big as she is. She is pooping and it is yellowish and runny. Can you tell me whats wrong with her? :'|

    I can't tell you for sure what is going on, but I just had this same issue... my girl passed away today after four days of this. I hope she takes a turn for the better! [​IMG]
