I have a 3 week old leghorn pullet that keeps standing up in one place with it's eyes closed. Seems to be eating, no pasty Butt, I dipped it's beak in eletrolye water this morning, 2nd day for eletrolyles in water. this chick is on medicated purina chick feed, fresh water, at least 2x a day. has access to a 3 different temp. areas in our brood and grow. any advise? I was thinking of picking up something at TSC, but what? it is in with 3 other leghorn pullets and I have 10 other chicks in a different level, no one else is reacting this way.

thank-you Kikisgirls! that's what I was thinking, I've never used it and wanted to be sure, and good job on the call for probiotics, silkie nerd! I'll pick that up as well.

Well, it's still standing, even when the other 3 are asleep on the ground. I've got nutra drench into it last night and today. I have nutradrench and probiotics, electrolytes in the water. She doesn't seem to be getting worse, but not improving either.
