    Hey guys , I'm new here .. what a great forum

    I picked up 6 RIR 2 week chicks on Saturday and they all seem very healthy. Within the last few days one of them has become very solitary , she is the smallest girl. Nooone seems to be picking on her but she never really jooins the group and sleeps standing up , and also keeps her eyes closed a lot throughout the day. Anybody have experience with this and what shoould I do for the little lady ?

    Had a Dominique acting the same way. She is probably sick with coccidiosis. Switch to a medicated feed. Also see if she is eating pine shavings. If she is she might not be eating enough feed.
