Hi , Background: I have 2: 2 mth old silky chicks who have not gained weight. There siblings are twice the size of them, this has all happened really suddenly and I am guilty of not watching them as much as usual as ive had orpahned lambs, doves and magpies to look after!! Now I noticed them sitting together in the shade on the grass and not foraging like the others too. I picked them both up[ and could feel their little breastbones protruding. As they are silkies, this wasnt evident until now due to feather cover.They are so underweight and undersize. Symptoms: Lethargic fall over frontward when trying to run with wings spanned. NOW: lying down and too weak to stand up. loss of appetite for food and water. No other symptoms visible. I have tried hydrating with water and vitamin/mineral boost in it which they accept but only through squeezing cotton wool ball soaked. Is there anything else I can try???? No one sells electrolytes for chickens, however i could try childrens one if advised it is safe. Thanks for any help.
