Hey All!! OK, so on Monday, two days ago, we got about 60 chicks delivered. Since then they have been going to different families, since it was a group order. Now we have only 23 chicks in the brooder. Last night and this morning we noticed something strange about the white polish chick. Last night we thought she was really just sleeping to much and being sorta listless and confused. This morning however, She sitting in a corner away from the heat lamp, (they are 6 day old now) cheeping like crazy for all she was worth. Then she flopped on her back, still cheeping, and we thought she was dead after the cheeping got really quiet, so we picked up a paper towel and leaned over to pick her up. Oddly enough, she jumped up and started running around the kiddie pool and wouldn't shut up. It's the only one cheeping, and she's getting back at all the ones that picked on it. About ten minutes ago she started running in circles, then flopped back onto her back. Now it seems like the cycle is going again, but the entire time she won't stop cheeping. It certainly sounds like a distress call, but when we pick it up and stroke her puff ball of a head, she does quiet down, but won't close her eyes. Is it possible for chickens to get epilepsy? (brain disorder) Has anyone ever seen this kind of condition in an almost week old chick?? They were in shipping from Friday to Monday, and only one immediately didn't survive the trip, and one died in it's sleep Monday night. Please help, I don't want another dead... Kinda off topic, but is it OK to give them some sort of roost if their practically a week old? THANK YOU!
