    How old is she? I had a chick that was laying "dead" on the ground. went to go get gloves to pick her up and got distracted. Came back an hour later and she was up chirping. The hen she was with rejected her and she got cold. As soon as she warmed up she was back to normal.

    At this age coccidiosis is a threat. Symptoms are lethargy or sleepiness, puffing up, ruffled feathers, pallor, poor appetite, and diarrhea. Occasionally there might be blood in the poo but not always. Treatment is amprollium (Coxoid or Corid) in the water for 5 days.

    There are two forms of Corid, liquid and powder. The dosage for the liquid is two teaspoons per gallon, and for the powder, it is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon.
