    I have three chicks. Though they were all purchased at the same time one, Roxy, seems to be much younger ... I am guessing MAYBE a week old. She is sleeping a lot ... almost falls over after being awake for just a short while. She is eating and drinking. I checked her bumb and she doesn't seem to have any problems other than being so tired.

    I have noticed the other two ... Olive and Rocco May seem to be fine but their poop looks like it has been squeezed out of a small tube?

    Thanks,
    Olive's Mom

    Roxy later died ...

    If she is eating, drinking, and pooping, then I wouldn't worry. I know what its likethough. There have been several times I woke up a "dead" chick. [​IMG]
    It is alarming how well they can sleep!
