    help i know she is dead but i want to make sure it wont happen to the others before we get rid of them.
    first i waswalking in side when the was gaging and calm so i brought her inside.
    next i lookedup what might be wrong. a few posts said impacted crop. i figured it was that because of the simtoms.
    the only thing is that it said before they die they would be sick for a week. she was sick for 3 hours. we rubed her crop to get it moving and it seemed to work at night she slept in my room with me. i woke up hearing fer gaging again and flaping around when we got to the family room she cocked her head and then she was gone. i held her for 3 more hours to make sure please hlp so we know it is alright to keep the rest.

    Could you go over the symptoms again and explain the set up she was in.... Like wire floor or shavings etc... Sorry you lost your baby.

    It it is cool where you are they may still need some heat at night or longer. Also..not sure of the symptoms..but Coccidia.is.common in young birds..you treat with Corid. You would start seeing your other chick get weak and sleep a lot.
