    Try and check out the poop because it can be very helpful. Does it have any blood in it?

    Is your chick starter medicated?

    Quote:Couple of ideas, but nothing concrete.

    Is it a hen or roo? If a hen, might be having trouble laying first egg?
    New birds can be carriers without exhibiting any signs of illness themselves. Any whistling, wheezing, runny eyes, nose in the sick chicken?
    Hard to believe we have to study chicken poop, but the appearance is important.

    Where are you keeping your sick birds? Are any of them eating?
    Have you tried giving them any yogurt, oatmeal, applesauce, or crumbles soaked in water?
    Are they drinking? Hydration is important, you might want to try some gatorade or some kind of electrolytes.

    seperate from the healthy ones on there on the ground. no draft. I made there food wet gave them some gatorade and got there eyes open and tried to get some of the junk out. they were eating the wet food. I called the vet but he wasnt avalible so i have to call tommrow.
