    My Red Blue Lace Wyandotte is sick and for the life of me I can't figure out what it is.

    Little back story:
    We bought 4 chicks from a small family owned hatchery. Bought 2 Ayam Cimani and 2 Red Blue lace Wyandotte. They were about a week or so old when we got them in August. One always looked super tired to me but was acting fine once we moved them outside. So chopped it up to cabin fever. About a month ago she (Wyandotte) was found dead in coop. No signed of anything before. Then a couple weeks ago one of the Cimani were laying down in coop very lethargic head back. Rushed her inside gave her couple drops of water tried to get her to eat a scrambled egg for quick protein boost. Then she started to try and flip around and stretch out trying to breather. Took her to front yard so she could move around where she died next to me a few moments later. No signed of anything. The a few hours later the other Cimani dropped dead. This last one seemed lethargic then got a little better. We felt bad she was alone, so have her a little check was acting fine eating drinking not lethargic just seemed sad being all alone. So we introduced her to the new batch of chicks we were moving outside and they were great together. She continued to be fine until couple days ago. Very sleepy, can't keep eyes open long, skin and bones, ruffled feathers. Just set up a little ICU inside the house so I can monitor her. Shes eating and drinking. I got her some electrolytes and probiotic but she was making no progress and seemed too pale. She almost looked like I felt when I was severely anemic. Her skin is see very see thru (not sure if normal). So got Rooster Booster Poultry Cell from Tractor Supple. I gave her half a dose nosed with half water. Nothing yesterday but plain water and food, today gave a full dose of (1cc) poultry cell mixed with 1cc of water. She has bad diarrhea so more electrolytes and probiotics in water.I took her outside away from other chickens and let her lay in sun and pick around the yard. She would walk around some then fall asleep standing up, until she came and poked my foot and made me wrap her back in my shirt where she slept next to me (she's very sweet and trusting). I'm no sure what she has or what else I can do to help her. Please if you have any suggestions I'd be so happy to hear! Just wanna save my little Minnie Mary Taylor. (I just noticed the little spots on her foot today and put some hen healer on it) 20191022_190551.jpg 20191022_190739.jpg 20191022_190742.jpg 20191022_190806.jpg 20191022_190828.jpg 20191022_190846.jpg 20191022_190927.jpg 20191022_155611.jpg

    Have you tried Corid to treat a possible Coccidiosis infection?
    Was her diarrhea bloody, foamy, have a yellow tint, or mucusy?

    No, extra vitamins, just the medicated water.
