    Didn't see this til morning, but when I checked them last night to lock everyone up for bed, he was still fluffed, not as big, but still quite a bit. I feel so bad!! I thought it was adorable, and he could be sick!

    If he is still fluffed today,put him in a coop with a heat lamp. It was 55 here this morning, and if he is feeling bad, he needs a bit of heat. Make sure he is eating and drinking. A bit of Gator Ade in his water would help too.

    Ok Ty. He is still fluffed. He is in what we built as an isolation cage, inside the coop, but Aphrodite is with him. We will add the heat lamp and Gatorade. Since she has been with him the entire time, I'm thinking it'll be ok to leave her with him? Should I go ahead and find some Corid and treat them? Or just wait and do their 8 weeks worming. I hate to medicate when I'm not sure what is wrong, but I don't want to lose them either.

    Make sure he can get away from the heat lamp as it warms up during the day. I would start them both on some POLY VI SOL drops Without iron,today too. You need to use these drops if you use Corid too. Are the droppings loose ?????

    [​IMG] Some are liquidy, but some look like this pic. Seems like a thick jelly like material, almost looks like an earthworm.

    That photo is not very clear, but those look like round worms.
