HI All,
we have a chick about 12 weeks old and appears to have this gunky stuff going on.

we are giving her water with a eye dropper.

She is active sometimes, but sometimes sits alone. also, her head is not raised up like the others, its like she has no neck.

Welcome to BYC and sorry your chick is sick. It looks like you chick might have wet fowl pox, a bacterial infection, or possible canker.

Are there lots of mosquitoes where you live?

Is there a bad odor from the beak? Do you have older birds? Have you seen this before in other chickens? It does appear to be either fowl pox or canker.

We do have older chickens and no we have not seen this before.
