    Dear all,

    My chickie (the one who is not growing - original thread here https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=552536 ) who seemed to be doing well is again VERY weak today, standing and sleeping, only drinking, pooped white liquid in the morning.

    I offered her chicken crumbs made into a porridge with water, she ate some of it (crop was nearly full) and then she pooped something that was dark brown (possibly with blood?) and it smells like cat poop [​IMG]

    Cocci treatment was done, what the heck can it possibly be?

    I know it's a weird question but thought I'd ask in case it's a typical sypmtom of something.

    I am not ready to give up on her yet cos she's still hanging in there, very weak but sleeping most of the time and does not seem to suffer. So I am posting just in case someone here knows.

    Thanks,
    Irena

    I'm sorry, but the outlook for your chick is not good. It is a sad fact of life that not all the babies that come into the world, of whatever species, are equipped to survive. That is just the way it is. Sometimes you can nurse the weak ones along, but in the long run it is seldom worth it. With a very few exceptions, they never seem to do well.

    Thank you Cassie, that's what it looked like but I had hopes until the last moment.

    My sweetie passed away yesterday evening.
