    I'm new to owning chickens. My sister in law gave my daughter two for her birthday in July ( I believe the are a polish/frizzle mix) they have the Pom poms on their heads but no feathers on their legs ( I'm very new to chickens as you can see lol) we had one pass away in he first month, I noticed she was sleepy a lot and was not acting herself in the days before she passed. We since then got a new girl to add in. Well my other Pom Pom bird that I believe is a rooster, started acting that sleepy way and we started then on the corid. He's been on it for two days and is still acting off. He has had runny poop with lots of mucus and iv noticed he had blood in it before. His feathers are ruffled up, neck in towards his body, lays down a lot. I was giving him water by a syring the first day but he started drinking on his own. He seems like one of his wings he can't really lift and is almost off balance. I'm just at a loss of what to do or how to help him and don't want my other chicken getting sick as well. Any help would be great! Thank yall
