    Hi I've got a sick chicken! She's an australorp and about 10wks old. 2 days ago it was extremely hot and humid here and, although my hens had plenty of water, I noticed this little one was disorientated and had trouble with her balance (she kept tipping on her side). We've been keeping her inside since, giving her food and electrolytes, but she's pretty much the same as she was.
    Does anyone have any idea how I can help her? I think she may have heat stroke or and inner ear infection but I'm not sure. She still has a good appetite and is drinking plenty of water.
