    One of my Golden laced Polish has something going on...

    I carried it in because it seemed very tired, and had an empty crop.

    Symptoms:
    -Empty crop
    -Puffed up feathers (not always but sometimes)
    -Weak
    -Holds tail down and stands pretty upright

    I took it in last night, and added sugar to its water.

    It has eaten plenty and drank a bunch, and now its crop is normal.

    The Problems:

    -It still holds its tail down
    -Tired
    -Fluffs its feathers from time to time
    -I HEARD IT SNEEZE!!

    It is about 6-7 weeks old right now.
    It is Mareks Vaccinated and I believe the feed is medicated...

    Its stools since its been inside are Normal..

    HELP ME!!

    You said he ate and drank today? it sounds like it may just have a small cold.
    You cab get a product called vetrx, it good for respitory colds.

    It sounds like the chicken had not been eating, causing the weakness. Just let the chicken eat and drink until he feels like he is completely well before taking him back to the coop.

    Your Polish chicken may have caught a cold. I'd recommend a product that is mainly for poultry that sneeze

    I'd try the Vetrx. Should help, can't hurt.
