    I posted about this chick this morning but my 15 week old golden comet chick is lazing about the pen today. She started the morning by having one eye closed, now she's just hanging on the roost or in the hay with her head down and both eyes closed. She doesn't have any other symptoms that I see... no sneezing or discharge, runny nose... HELP!

    Hmmmmm, sounds odd. She is too young to be laying, so I wouldnt think she would be eggbound, or internal layer. Has it been hot there? Might be the heat? I would definately seperate her from the others....just in CASE she has something contagous. Mayeb you can bring her in the house, in a crate. Keep her quiet...warm..and give her some electrolytes in her water. Hopefully someone will come up with another suggestion. Hope she makes it.
