lethargic, pale face, hunched over puffed up, stumbling around, not eating and drinking much, diarrhea.
no other chickens sick. its not worms ( worms make chickens lose weight rapidly ) not mites ( haven't found any ) he has a soft crop ( no crop problem )

Sounds like my Barred Rock Pullet. I took every reasonable course of action with no improvement...antibiotics, Corid, dewormed, forced fluids and solids. I found her laying on her side under the hanging feeder, just barely alive. She was the only sick one of the bunch.

After the six week process of trying everything suggested. I did what I was taught by my Dad whom raised poultry. Hopefully someone on this very informative forum will have an alternative.
