Hi everyone. I got my three chicks from mypetchicken.com on Wednesday. I noticed right away that one of them was smaller and less active (breed: australorp). That little one has trouble. Every few minutes (I haven't set a timer or anything) she goes into a head-scratching fit _slash_ panic attack. I think she is in pain and can't find resources on what to do. On Wednesday and Thursday daytime she wasn't scratching her head but she was so weak that *I* was having a panic attack. I ground up medicated crumble in yogurt and spoon fed her, finger-dripped water for her and got her back on her feet. She seemed okay for most of Thursday. But that night I had to go to work. She was left with my significant who does his best but isn't great at this kinda thing. He called me and told me about the scratching. When i got home she seemed okay. So I went to bed. When I woke up she looked dead. I quickly realized she had kicked herself off her feet and was so tired (possibly from scratching all night long) that she didn't want to bother with getting up. I examined her and saw she is a little pecked around the neck - I can't tell if the other two birds gave her some concerned/disdainful pecks or if this is from her scratching. Anyway Here's video of what's happening LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUY9g17IiZ8 embed: <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> I gave her electrolytes, and mixed cat food and olive oil in with the food for a protein power snack. I've separated her from the others as of today. The other two are twice her size and totally fine. I put a touch of Apple Cider Vinegar in the group water, gave the little one sugar water Wednesday and electrolytes Thursday. I'm off to the store to get vitamin (polyvisol) as I've seen quite a few posts here recommending that. What else can I do? What is happening to this bird? I wonder if maybe she's itchy from growing fast - as in, catching up to the others makes her feathers itch. She has been grooming in general more than the others. But, as you see in the video she makes a horrible sad sound when her head itches. And she falls over into food on the ground and then needs to clean that off. Thank you for any help you may have! - Julie P.S. These are my first chicks.
