Pretty sure I have my first sick chick. I have waited months for a Silkie. Get one today (after loosing three older ones last night, see last post) I got more Ameracuanas today to replace those lost, and they had this one lonesome Silkie. It was running away from me in the brooder at the feed store, acting fine. Got it home (about 20mins later) and it was acting weak. So I left it in the box and removed all the Ameracuans (who seem fine) I turned the box into a little hospital for it. I made it drink some water with sugar in it and it took a sip everytime I made it but as soon as I stop moving it/messing with it...it closes it's eyes and goes back to sleep. When I would leave the room it would stand tall and peep loudly at the other chicks but when I would come back it would settle back down again and go to sleep. No blood in it's poop (but I don't think it's eaten any food) So...symptoms are: Lethargic. Sleeps all the time, in the same spot without really moving Sleeps in a tight ball with head down, but perks up when it sees me peeps loudly (maybe at the other chicks it's separated from) Doesn't seem to want to walk around but can stand. Sat it down on a table and it walked around for a minute but not far. Normal poop, no blood and not even really 'runny' Does not seem to startle at noises, my hand or anything that the other chicks freak out about.
