    My white ee, 8weeks old, is the bottom of the pecking order and there is something wrong with her! 1st she is getting pecked by the flock! But is the way she peeps. She doesn't peep, peep, peep like the rest, she is quiet all the time except when she sundenly shakes her head and loudly goes....PEEP!...does it all the time, is weird! (like chicken tourrets lol) Also she always looks hot, beek open wings a lil fluffed, laying down A LOT....is too weird. She eats and drinks fine, but is obvious something is wrog with her...I just don't know what....ugh!!!

    Quote:I thought about that and I looked her over and over and nothing "out of the norm" other than the missing feather where the other chicks pecked at her....I'll keep looking...

    Coccidia was my first thought....Corid would work well for that.

    Most any feed store or tractor supply is where you can find Corid. Good luck.
