In the Brooder
- May 21, 2019
I was outside with my girls a couple hours ago and out of nowhere I noticed that my 18 week old Cochin was standing up and closing her eyes. I had already been with them an hour and she hadn’t done it, but once she started she keeps doing it. She isn’t dropping her head exactly, just drooping it a bit when she does it. She went to drink and kept closing her eyes in between drinking. She seems to be grooming a bit more than usual. Her poop is also runny and strange looking. I’m including a picture, only so you can see what it looks like. She seems to be eating and drinking as usual, and I’m not sure if she’s fluffed up more than usual, since she’s already so fluffy. I’ve only had chickens since May, so I’m no expert yet. This set we’ve had 4 and a half weeks. and we were about to put everyone together. Glad we haven’t yet. I’ve already given her water treated with corid, in case if it’s coccidia. We’ve had other birds have it back in May, these girls are in another place and and like I said we’ve had them 4 and a half weeks.
