I posted earlier about my sick chick being lethargic and not walking much. I thought it had a case of pasty butt so I started treatment for that but the chick went down hill quickly after treatment was started and passed on to chicken heaven. I checked the rest of my chicks last night and they were all happy and healthy. When I got home from work today one chicken was laying on the floor of the brooder and was very lethargic. I picked it up and tried to get it to stand but it wouldn't. I got it to drink a little bit but it wouldn't do much else. The chick had a clean behind so it couldn't be pasty butt. I let it be for about a half hour and when I returned it had passed on to chicken heaven as well. Any ideas of what is going on with my chicks? I'm new to having chicks and want to keep them safe! Please help!!!!
