    daisy is a twenty week old Americana. for the past few days she has been very tired. Today, she keeps hiding under bushes and just standing or sitting, with only one of her eyes half way closed. She actually let us hold her today,(she is usually very skid-dish.) and we gave her water and sugar mix. I havent seen her eat or drink today. Currently, she is sleeping next to another (healthy) chicken. Does anybody know how to treat this? Thanks soooooo much!!!!!

    I recommend you pick her up and inspect her for lice/mites, check around her vent area especially.
