    We have a 2 month old black australorp who is eating ok, we're not real sure she's drinking well so we've been giving her water with a straw. She is very weak and seems to have little balance. Falls over easily. We have placed her in isolation as we're not 100% sure it's not coccidiosis. Was wondering if we could let her free range with the other chickens. We don't want her to be picked on if and when she gets better. She wants to be out with the others. She has normal poop.
