    Have seven 7 wk old chicks, were supposed to be Cornish X but are not big (maybe 1-2 lbs), so I really don't know what breed they might be. Today one is off in corner, tired, has runny poo on back feathers, very pale yellow, egg yolk consistency. She seems to like the heat lamp. Its been unusually cold and wet last three days after being very hot.

    My rooster was very lethargic - just sat around with head bowed, yellow poo, not crowing for about 3 days. I gave him sulmet in his water and his favorite food ( fried egg). made sure he was drinking. Now he's back with his girls crowing up a storm.
    I don't know what he had.
    But I would treat quickly - I used Sulmet from the feed store. Make sure they are drinking (electrolytes might help) and keep warm as they are still pretty young.
    Good luck with them.
