    I also isolated her from the rest of the chicks.

    Hi lvchicken, I don't know what could be wrong but have you contacted Ideal and told them?

    No, not yet. The funniest thing just happened!!! The chick that's inside (her name's Icey; the infected one) couldn't contain her excitement and flew onto my keyboard!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Can you determine if she can see at all? she may have a vision problem.

    Well other than her eyes she sounds like she is pretty spry, do you think she can see alright? and I think I would give her a buddy so she won't be lonely, chickens are very social.

    I think that she can see alright. She jumped off my hand and ran straight for the waterer! Should I look into any medications or anything of the sort?
