    I recently bought a Red Sex Link chick from the Stock Shop along with a black sex link, buff orpinton, and another red sex link. The chick is very weak and doesn't want to really open his eyes. He hold his wings from his body but is not overheated. He sleeps all day and does not eat. Please someone tell me what's wrong....
    Thanks

    Other than the emergency thread - can you take him to a vet. It is extremely difficult to diagnose a medical problem over the internet. We can't see or examine him.

    She died just recently and I think it was Coccidiosis.
