    Did you get a new bag of feed recently...if so, what brand...any leg paralysis?

    What kind of new chick did you get?

    no..just mixed some adult food in their starter for the last few days.. no leg paralysis just puffed up and started bubbling clear fluid out of it's mouth. and a baby chicken.

    Did they not have water for awhile? I am thinking salt toxicity or not enough water so they gobbled the water too fast and that caused the bubbling.

    You can treat the salt toxicity with distilled water to flush toxins out (if no damage is done already).

    they have had water. haven't been out of it.
    also, he is still eating and being active with the other birds..he just remains fluffed up and sometimes stops what he is doing and acts like he is going to throw up kind of..
    actually, now that i watch them.. he seems to be eating and drinking excessively. that's all he is doing.
    maybe i'm just being crazy...

    well he made it through the night but still isn't acting normal..i just gave him distilled water all night, no food.. when can they have their food back?
    and when do i give them regular water again?
    thank you! [​IMG]

    If It Were Salt Toxicity He Would Have Been A Goner In A 2-3 Hrs At Most. Perhaps He Just Aspirated( Fancy Term For Ralphed Then Inhaled The Ralph... [​IMG] )? If So Pnuemonia Is A Likely Side Effect From That

    I am thinking he is drinking his water too fast now! [​IMG] Hmmm, I would separate him and treat him like a day old button...jar lid with water and food and heat lamp...observe what he does..
