No, nothing. 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing, they were all fine yesterday. 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Eating Purina Flock Raiser it's whole life, clean water with a bit of vitamin/electrolyte solution once every 1-2 weeks. 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Unsure, but I haven't seen any odd looking poop in the brooder. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Nothing, I have no idea what to do. 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Treat myself 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. Sorry, no. 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use. In a brooder with other chicks and guinea keets. Brooder is inside, and has a 52 watt light for heat. All chicks/keets in the brooder are at least 3 weeks old. There are 10 keets and I think 7 or 8 chicks. They are on pine shaving bedding, which is what they've always been on. I just cleaned the brooder and changed bedding yesterday. It is a new bag of bedding. All the others look fine.
