    I have 11 new chicks and they are all running everywhere but their is one chick that all of a sudden started acting differently . They are all females (supposedly) about a week old. The chick i am speaking about is an ameraucana , she started hiding away in the corner and staying their , she is not running around or sleeping with the others , she's only standing and she does not sit or lie down to sleep like chicks do . I jus saw her poop and it was all clear and was kind of watery/mucusy? She seems to be in a state of depression, what is wrong with her and is their something I should do?

    Based on your description I immediately suspect Coccidiosis. I am not a vet by any means, but lethargy and mucus in droppings are very common signs. Plus, this is an extremely common issue in chickens including backyard chickens.

    You can treat with corid, found at tractor supply co.
