I found one of my Leghorns yesterday somewhat stuporous. We've had a week of high 90's with 'real feel' at 115. All other chicks are ok and have electrolyte solution available to them. I immediately took her into the house, cooled her off with cool water and a fan and started electrolyte solution. As of today she had not eaten anything - even her favorite treats - but I'm not pushing that. I've been giving her 20 mls of electrolyte solution with a syringe every hour or so. She will drink from the end of the syringe with a little encouragement. She just squawked a protest which is the most life I've seen from her since yesterday afternoon. Otherwise she has been doing a lot of sleeping or quietly looking around. She layed an egg with a soft shell during the night and has had two liquid stools. She is perking up but I just wanted advise from those of you with more experience than me. Is there anything else I should be doing for her? Thanks for any advice you can give.
