We have 2 baryard bantam chicks that are about 10 weeks old. They both became very weak suddenly about 3 weeks ago. We thought they had gotten stepped on by our pygmy goats but they seemed to only worsen. We took them to a local vet on Friday and she suspects that they have a B2 deficiency. We had already given them 2 B2 injections and we have been putting a vitamin supplement in their water. The vet suggested another B complex injection for each and to wait 3 days and see what happens. They are not improving. We have to put their food and water right up to their faces. They cannot move other than to occasionally pivot. They do seem more alert today but physically I don't see any improvement. My husband did some on line research tonight and they look just like chickens with Merricks disease. Their legs are flopped out to the sides or in a V in front of them. They tip over easily too. Its sad but we are having a hard time euthanizing them when we aren't 100% sure they cannot be treated. Not to mention that our chickens are our pets and we have 3 little girls that want to keep trying. Are you prolonging the inevitable? Do you think they will heal or be physically handicapped forever? Please respond if you know. We really need help!!! We love these little guys but do not want to see them suffer.
