Hi everyone, I picked up a couple bantam chicks to meet a minimum sale (I wanted a couple turkeys but had to buy a minimum of 5 birds) and one is having a really hard time. He/she has gotten trampled an awful lot by the bigger birds I already had at home (the other bantams have blended in just fine) and he has a bloody toe that the others peck at so I separated him and a few other birds from the others. Anyway, he's not really drinking or eating and is "falling" backwards onto his haunches/knees a lot. Sometimes to the point of flipping over entirely onto his back. Once on his back, he can't flip himself back over without help. I read the rules so here's the form: 1) She/he is a bantam, I believe a game bird of some sort. Does not feel any more delicate or skinnier than the other bantam. 2) What is the behavior? The behavior is that he is falling backwards uncontrollably. Can't/won't stand. Haven't seen it eating or drinking but will drink if I dip its beak into the water. It is sleeping every time I look at it, but it will respond by stiffening and peeping if touched. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? Since the day I brought it home. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? Nope. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. Yes, it appears to have maybe a bit of blood around its nostril but that may just be coloring? It's also got trauma to a toenail that the others were picking at before I separated it from them. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. No occurrence sticks out in my mind, unless it just got trampled by the older birds. 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Chick pellets and electrolytes in water. But only when I dip it's beak in the water. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Someone in the bin has diarrhea, not sure if it's him though. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Separation and warmth. Also added electrolytes and have been helping it drink. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I hope I can make it better but if not I'd rather put it put of it's misery. A vet isn't really an option. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Pine shavings in a storage bin.
