I am hopeful they recover for you. I had nutri-drenched all of mine in the past when I had issues like that. Have only had to euthanize one so far.This it not a good day. When I left the coop/ run around 2 this afternoon I had just finished giving the little tike water mix and some of the selenium & Vitamin E mix. It seemed to be stabilized and not getting worse. I was feeling cautiously optimistic.
Returned about 6-7hrs later to discover bad news. "Flappy" the Momma had chosen to hunker down away from the crate/ nesting area as the sickly chick had gotten alot worse.
I tried to get it to eat (freshly scrambled egg mushed up) and or drink the fortified water mix or the Vitamin E mix. The chick wouldn't open it's eyes and was do a rather labored looking open mouth breathing.
So after that all failed I gave the scrambled egg mush to "Flappy" & her other times.... One of them was from the 1st batch and was hunkered down with them quietly.
When I moved them around the extra white one had a hint of a unstable walk once I set it down in the crate.
I took a deep breath and really studied it's movements for about 5 minutes then, I went and got a tote for the very sick one and returned.
Put the very sick one in the towel lined tote and then gently moved Flappy & the lil'ones into the crate. The extra white. Hi k had a much more noticed wabble trying to walk past the water container. (Deep sigh)
So I pulled this little one out and tried to get it to drink from the dropper and some more of the scrambled egg..... It drank for a little bit but, was also showing some slightly labored breathing once it hunkered down in my lap and closed it's eyes....
Well now I'm stuck with one about to be "put to sleep" & one that tomorrow will show me whats gonna happen next....
This picture is the little tike right before I took it to go snuggle up to Flappy. View attachment 2278401
