    . One of my sebright chicks is really rough. Came home yesterday and she was lethargic. I fed her honey water and she perked up and ate and seemed fine. Came home today and she can hardly stand or walk. She sort of teeters and lays down whenever i try to stand her up. I fed her more honey water by force, she wouldnt drink this time but it didnt help. I havent seen her even try to eat since i got home three hours ago

    Keep feeding her honey water, and add a little sugar to make it a bit stronger. She may be suffering from shiping stress.
    Get some save a chick electrolytes, or whatever brand you want, and mix it in with the water. Then, I would try to get some yogurt and feed it to her through an eye dropper.
