    My 3-4 week old Black copper Marans chick seems quite lethargic. Seems content to stand still with eyes closed. Vent/butt seems almost as if it’s pulsating?? I did see him poop earlier today. Appeared normal. I got him to drink a little poly-vi-sol. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I would get some Chick Drench and see if you can’t syringe it into it’s mouth. Did it get overheated? Is it on just chick feed?

    Just on chick starter. It’s brooder is large enough that the chicks can easily move away from the heat.
