    We bought 3 Rhode Island Reds. Within 2 days we lost one and now another one is presenting the same symptoms. She's weak, barely standing, still chirping :) not eating or drinking. I tried feeding her with a dropper, but clear liquid comes back out?! Anyone have any ideas as to what might be going on with them?

    How are these chicks being kept? Food? Temps? Bedding? How does their poop look?

    Where did you get these chicks and how old are they?

    Sorry, didn't see the first part of your reply. They're in a brooder in the house with a heat lamp. Using chick starter, along with ACV in their water. She did poop not too long ago, it looked normal.
