    Hi there. I have this one little sebright mix chick and it seems to be kind going lame. About a week or so ago it started laying down a lot and stretching out it's wings like it was having a hard time balancing. A week later it doesn't lay down any more eats a fair amount but hasn't grown any, peeps alot and has a dirty bottom. It's stools are greenish and have a watery, clear puddle around them. We have a Polish who is also having a hard time walking, dirty bottom and stools as described. The Polish is very small and also hasn't grown much and seems to have a hard time eating. We don't have an avian vet close by and wouldn't take the bird because of the expense, in need of help!
