    Purchased 4 Ameraucana chicks the other day. All seemed Ok (eating drinking) until day 2 when one of them was less active than the others. Was even weaker that night, barley able to walk, gave it a little warm sugar water. It is even worse today, can hardly stand up without falling over, separated her from the rest, afraid they would walk all over her. And placed a warming pad under her. Any one have suggestion? Or is she a goner? The other 3 are active and lively.

    Hate to say it but that kinda sounds like the one I lost this morning. I'd say dont give up hope as long as it doesn't look like it's suffering, but prepare yourself for the chance you may find it lifeless.

    Sorry to hear you lost yours. She does not look like she is suffering, I'll hope for the best...
