    Please help! We have a chick that in the morning we noticed that something is wrong with her. She's wheezing and sneezing,has difficulties breathing. She has some liquid that is coming out of her nose and one of her eyes in the morning was watery and now is closed and the other one is on the way to close. All of them are on Corid because 4 died from coccidiosis. What should we do with her? Please! I don't want her to die

    I would put her on Peniccilin and keep her very warm, as it sounds like pneumonia to me... but see what the others suggest.
    Hope she makes it..

    Sometimes these things just happen. Its no ones fault. It's nature. You can give her sugar water and see if that boosts her energy enough to help her.

    I'm trying with antibiotic oxytetracycline. And I gave her some sugar water. Let's see how it goes. She's losing power.
