    I am posting this on behalf of my sister who has yet to join this wonderful forum. She received a shipment of 15 day old chicks from a hatchery this past Thursday and now has a sick EE. The chick is lethargic, will only stand from the knee up, has runny creamy-yellow poops, and wont open it's eyes except when startled. She has the chick seperated from the rest. I told her to give the chick ACV water and scrambled eggs, but the chick wont eat. She lives in the sticks and we are having a wind storm right now and knocked out her internet service, so she can't email me a picture. Any ideas?? [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance! You all are so knowledgable on this stuff!
