Friends, I have been searching the Internet for weeks for help. You are my last hope. I found a post about a duck that was fairly similar but not exactly. On September 11, I purchased 3 Bourbon Red Chicks. As they approached 2 weeks old, one began falling backwards and I thought maybe it had injured it's leg. I read everything o could find and tried to help, but soon noticed it wasn't actually the leg, it was balance. The little chick acted drunk and continued to grow worse. Then about a week later another one of the chicks started showing the same behavior. At this point I called the feed store who was gracious enough to call the hatchery. I administered antibiotics given by the feed store... Who thought maybe the chicks had got too cold because they had no problems and neither did the hatchery. At that point the chick began having seizures and long story short, all three ended up sick and died. This was very hard! Now I've had two Royal Palm Chicks that are two weeks old and I have been very careful to be sure they didn't get cold or get around my other chicken babies. I separated the turkeys and the chickens. The only thing is that I feel like the royal palms were exposed to what ever the bourbon reds had because today one of the royal palms has started showing the same symptoms. On the same day I purchased the bourbon reds, I also purchased 2 Ameraucanas and a welsummer. The chickens are doing great and I have put them out in the coop today. I'm so concerned about the little royal palms. And by the way- once in a while they sneeze. Can anyone help? I don't know what else to do. It seems to be a contagious neurological issue... Which scares me for my own health and that of my chickens.
