    I have a baby that is 10 weeks old and is just mooping around like it does not feel good. Could someone tell me what might be the problem? The other ones are doing fine.[​IMG]

    Can you provide us with a little more info.? Is she eating/drinking? How do her stools look? Any discharges from the beak, nostrils. Any sneezing?

    Is she standing, cold feet, beak and head in almost vulture looking? Are her droppings watery or do they look like uncooked sausage in a casing? Do you see blood? If this sounds about right, do a search on Cocci. there is a wealth of info here but you have to litterally spell things out and honestly, someone has been there.
    Good luck!! Hope your baby is well, give it water and a bit of sunlight for some added warmth.

    She passed away. Found her when I got home from work. I had noticed her poop was real runny and she was not eating. She would drink. We have a heat lamp to keep them warm. I am just worried that the other ones might get sick. [​IMG]
