    I have twelve 6 week old cornish x chicks. One seems to be on a hunger strike. She still drinks water, but just stands back when breakfast and dinner arrive. I noticed it yesterday afternoon. Any idea what may be going on with her?

    is her crop large? Could be impacted....

    or maybe.. just maybe she knows what's going on here...
    and says, NO WAY, I am not eating! lol

    Are the others picking on her when she tries to eat?

    Nope, no picking. And her crop is not large. She went outside with the gang this afternoon - they are all currently just laying around in the grass and flower bed.
