    I have a 5 week old partridge cochin. She is crying, yelling, talking constantly. It started today. Took her to the vet. They performed a fecal and it showed no worms. I am currently treating for cocci. They are eating a medicated feed and I still am having to treat for it. SOOOOOOOO frustrated and worried anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

    I am trying so hard to take care of them. I don't think I will try to raise chics in the summer again. Way to Hot and humid.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. You might have better luck posting your concern under the Emergencies section. You will need to let us know more about your bird. Age, feed, symptoms, housing, bedding, any companions? Good luck.
