Found my baby chciken acting sick, not like its self. Any ideas what it could be. Seems when her neck gets under her she can not get it back up without my help.she is 5 weeks old, on medicated chick starter feed. No heavy breathing no watery eyes. She tried to sit on a roosting bar and she just somersaulted forward and landed on her back. Something is wrong. I am not usually able to hold her and when I picked her up she did not make a noise about it. Something is not right!!!

You'll need to provide more information such as her age and what her symptoms are. Is she getting medicated chick feed? Blood in her poop? Watery eyes or nose? Heavy breathing?

She just pooped again and all that came out was water. Do you think I need to isolate her?

It does sound like wry neck or crook neck. I was just reading a thread last week concerning the use of using vitamin E capsules, and selenium tablets, and combining with PolyViSol baby vitamins to treat. The writer also suggested islolating the chick, so it wouldn't be stressed. The condition improved a bit each day, but sometimes can last for weeks.
