    I think my baby chick has a Epidemic tremor! what do I do!!! Every time she gets up she flips over and straitens up and falls asleep! i'm scared what do I do? [​IMG]
     
  2. All my chicks that have had this ended up passing... Not saying yours will! My duck had that also and lived though! Not sure how to treat this, but I kept her still with my hands and held her under a heat lamp in a towel and gave her water with a pipette.

    I try keeping her from waking up she does okay when she's asleep. I don't have a pipette though. I also have her lying next to a fire place to keep her warm. sometimes she flips over to here stomach. I don't want to leave her home by herself.

    I guess there's nothing i could do my mom says I can't do anything....[​IMG]
     
  5. My mom hates me having birds inside, but If they're sick they WILL be inside! Lol!

    Could you post a pic? Make sure and keep her nice and warm! Get a spoon, fill with water and dip her beak into it and she should try to sip out of it! Good luck! I will follow this thread to see how she does!
