, I don't know whats happening there is a diease or something going though my 6-8 week old chicks. It makes them stop eating until there so weak, once there weak its about 24 hours and they are dead.. I dont know what to do, the others seem ok. This sickness took out 1, and now anothers on its death bed, I cant help but to cry. I've done everything possible. forced them to eat, drink, gave them sugar water, dewormed them just in case, got them under a heating lamp. But nothing helps, once they become weak there gonners. Now my favorites on its death bed, I sit next to it and pray. Shes a Barred rock who thought I was her mom, I would always have to run away from her because she would try to follow me into the house..
