As Karen, Pikeman and I have been discussing recently those sussex just seem to have extra weak systems. I would have done the same thing, Water, electrolytes, sugar and maybe some vitamins if it pulled through another day. By the way Trish, That is Dr. Danz not nurse Danz!! It was probably due to shipping stress. Watch your other chicks because about day 5 is when the pasty butt usually shows up. Keep those little bottoms clean! I got the bottom boards on the new building while ago and came back in to find some drawings to see where the boards go at the top. I was going to install some more boards so I could hang my perches but figured I'd better wait or DH would be angry. I hate waiting! I should be out working on the poultry trailer but all the equipment is sitting out for the new building. I would much rather just do my own projects than wait on him on something we are doing together. Pikeman I built a chicken tractor that shape. The problem with an A frame is it limits your roosting space. I have an A frame tractor I use for a handful of birds now and then. I have my silkies in one right now. I guess it is ok if you don't have a lot of birds or you do it on a larger scale. Thats JMO though. I have a lot more birds than most of your backyard hobbiest have.
