So after the tragedy of losing all but one of our first batch of chicks, I went and bought our one Jersey Giant chick 8 friends from tractor supply. We got a mix of breeds and they were all looking great and growing fine until I checked on them yesterday morning. They're a month old now. When I went out to feed the chickens yesterday, one of our Cuckoo Marans was acting a little funny. Wasn't interested in food or water and she had her wings hanging by her sides and was walking kind of funny with her legs wide apart and stumbling a lot. We separated her from the other chicks and tried to get her to eat and drink. The best she could do was a sip here or a nibble there. Then she started trembling. Now, today, she's barely peeping and she can't even stand! She just sits there with her legs out in front of her and splayed out to the sides and her wings limp! She doesn't have a fever and I can't find any injuries. Does anyone know what's causing this?
