Hi none of them looks sick eyes and nose are bright nd clear
At this age u can't tell rooster or hen until 7-10 week


Their comb is small yet
Wait for the full development

Why u give lemon chickens don't take citrus

Although u can add some raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar in water that will clear any bad bacteria

Ohh alright well thank you it's cuz I love chicks and animals ,especially in that color it really catches my attention

Yes she's young I might check to see if I have an aprox age or rescue date,thank you I've tried my best to make her beautiful I even clean her legs and beak she doesn't like to be held but she's my baby and I can't help it ,I've always wanted to make her into a show hen but where I'm from she's worth $0 but to me she's worth all the money I've spent

You should take new pictures without cleaning her up and post a new thread here with an explanation of all her symptoms and when they started:
https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures.10/

You should isolate this bird and provide additional support for her while you wait for assistance with treating her. Offer water with electrolytes and give her some Poultry Nutri-drench in her feed.
