    There is no obvious signs of injury, other than th peck marks from th other phesants. will drink ocassionally. i gave it sugar water, as i have nothing else. It is still moving and breathing. I made a mash out of baby oatmeal and water. Is there anything else that I can do for it?

    Does it have good capillary refill action? Any other symptoms at all? [​IMG] Mites?

    I doubt it has mites since we got it yesterday. There are 30 total and they were all doing fine until tonight. the rest are fine but this one just wants to sleep and it doesnt fight when you pick it up. It actually snuggles my hand when I hold it. Is there anything I can do if it just got trampled? It is smaller than most in the brooder. How do i check for capillary refill?

    Well at 10:32pm lastnight the little phesant died. I did everything I could. Hopefully no more die. Thanks for the advice.
