    Please Help! I am a brand new chicken owner.
    As of yesterday my 2 month chick started acting lethargic, started sleeping all the time etc. Today it is not drinking or eating and just lays down away from the others and doesnt move much. When it does walk its seems to just stumble around. Its poop is white and mucous looking. I just started the chicks on Sulmet bc I need to do something and coccidiosis seems to be a common thing in chickens from what I have read online.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? This chick really means alot to me.
