    Hi there! I am very nervous about one of my chicks, she is a 2 week old Buff Orpington, yesterday she was the liveliest of the bunch, going around playing with all the others, she is definitely boss! Today when I came home from work, she was sleeping, I picked her up and she was limp, when I set her down, she just lied down and closed her eyes. She won't get up, eat, or drink. I fed her some home made electrolyte water through a syringe a few minutes ago, but I need to know if there's anything else I can do or if anyone knows what may be wrong. She is one of my favorites. Thank you!

    She also has been kind of twitching her head every once in a while, as if something was in her ear or eye.

    Quote:Maybe give her some probiotics with the electrolyte water. If that doesn't work, you might just to have to take her to the vet. Also check if she is too cold, or too warm.
