I just bought a dozen red cochins/frizzled cochin chicks from a lady. I have gotten numeous adult hens from her before with no problem. Her hens are always docile to the point you can walk right up to them, pick them up and pet them. She hand feeds them, so they are all docile and friendly. I have never purchased chicks from her before. These chicks are completely feathered out, even the legs, some are frizzled and a couple are silkie type feathering. But they don't move around or scratch. If you put them on the floor they lay there. If you move one away from the others he will run back to lay with them. They just don't scratch and walk around like most chickens do. They drink fine, eat fine from your hand, and move fine if you separate them from each other. They just seem to like to lay together in a pile. No chirping or flapping unless you handle them. No diarrhea. No coughing, no respiratory issues, no lice that I see. They are about 2+mo old from their looks. They aren't afraid. They don't even appear ill. They are just like zombies who never explore, never separate from each other....... I don't mean normal clumping like chicks do when they are cold. Even baby chicks walk around and chirp and peck around. And these chicks are three-fourths the size of adult cochins. Is there some disease that looks like that? I thought maybe she had just kept them so crowded that they never learned to explore? If I put some water next to them, they get up and drink. If I put some food right next to them they eat. Otherwise they spend almost all their time just laying together in a group very calm. At first I thought they were just afraid, but now I am concerned there is some thing wrong with them? I hope I didn't infect that whole henhouse with something. Have you ever seen chicks that were not curious?
