    Thank you for allowing me to join. I've been reading BackYard Chickens and I've already learned a lot.
    We have some baby Bantams and also some RIR chicks. One of the RIR chicks
    has nasty diarrhea and chirps REALLY loudly, like nothing I've ever had heard
    a chicken do. I'm giving him electrolytes and probiotics in the water hoping
    that will help. Any advice?

    Can't wait to meet each one of you!

    G’Day from down under Criderchicks [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and your little ones all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I hope your chick will recover - diarrhea is very debilitating to animals and humans.
