but hoping someone can give me some insight. We have owned chicks for just 5 months. got them as day olds. they were all doing fine and then yesterday one of the red stars got very lethargic, just lay in my arms, and seemed to be breathing very shallow. couldn't see anything going on. pooped a little yellow poop. she just lay for hours until she died. we are very new to this and heartbroken. does anyone have any ideas? we did separate her from the others as soon as we noticed she was sick...........thanks for any help.
