we have 2 chicks in the house that are between 6 and 7 wks old. one is a malay breed and the other is a mixed large breed pullet. they have both been having diarrhea for about a week or so. it is kind of tarry. they both stand fluffed up for awhile with their heads tucked into their bodies, then awhile later will be relaxed and lay down and stretch out under the light. the pullet is a wk older than the malay, she was the smallest of the previous hatch. so we put her in with the single baby to help it learn. i have noticed that she will extend her neck and will peck at the air when their is nothing there. she also misses the food bowl allot. she follows the other chicks lead to food. i mean she almost stands on top of him when they are eating. sometime she will eat sometimes she won't. she just stand as close to him as she can get. they both have been having diarrhea for about a week. they have no sneezing or snot or bubbles their bedding is hay they eat chick starter with grit added. i can't get them to try other stuff. they just won't touch it. when it is warm outside they get to go play in the fenced garden. but they are just not interested in running around scratching and pecking. they find a corner or tall grass and cuddle up together and fluff up and won't socialize with the other chicks their age. i would hate to lose them. they have very good personalities. the malay takes a interest in his surrounding. when someone comes in the house, he will fly up on the waterer or the side of the box just to see who it is. he doesn't try to get out of the box, he won't leave the other chick.
