    age, 4 weeks
    breed, Marans
    feed, chick starter
    bedding, was on hay now on dirt. with heat lamp

    2 days ago all 30 of them looked puffed up and listless.
    took them off the hay and put them on dirt, sprayed oxine AH
    all but 2 got better right a way.
    1 was gasping for air and died.
    the other is flipping around, legs stretched out, cannot stand, acts like it is drunk. Have this one isolated
    I have been misting with Oxine AH 2X day
    PolyV Vitamin 2 drops 2x day
    moist feed with egg yoke
    Cannot eat or drink by its self
    What else should I do?

    I Would like to save the Wheaton Maran
    I think this is caused by mold in the hay!!!
    What else can I do to reverse the damage?
    All the rest are still doing great.

    Some one ****HELP PLEASE****is there a cure?
    day 4 the chick is still unstable. walks like a drunk, is there any hope?
    It drink and eats (with help) and appears to be getting better
    both wings work, both leggs work, just not together
    I think we waited too long to clean out the pen.
    From everything I have read I think it has aspergillus.
    The rest of the 30 are still just fine.

    I am really sorry I don't know of any cure it probably effected the chicks respitory system and then nervouse system. I hope someone has more helpful suggestions.

    It breathing is fine.
    the nervous system or the inner ear I think is affected.
    If it backs into a corner you would think it was fine.
    All the rest responded to the oxine ah

    I had not thought of a flush, will do that tonight.

    I bought the Avain charge 2000, got it yesterday, the biddie drank it like she had not had water all day.

    must be something in it that it needs.

    It is doing better, was walking backwards now can go forward.

    Just read that link to the botulism, I don't think it is that, but it could be toxins.
    They have not been out of their pen, the pen had hay that got wet from poo & pee.

    If I'm giving the Avain charge 2000 should I also give the PolyV ? I'm also giving B complex & E.

    Thank you for the help!!!!
