2nd post on this week old sickie chickie. She doesn't eat on her own, seems to know how to drink - only once in a blue moon though. Unless I'm feeding her, she's sleeping. Not gaining weight, nothing in her crop I didn't put there, which is a mix of yogurt/boiled yolk/Pedialyte/sugar, given via eyedropper, hourly during the day, maybe twice a night for the wee hours. Yep, her wee butt is clean, and yep, she poos. What the heck?! Is she going to die whatever the heck I do? I thought she might be blind, but she has a couple of times made a stab at the eye dropper - I think her eyes work. When I feed her & put the bugger down she wildly cleans her bill, then goes back to being largely uninterested in anything but sleeping. What do I have? A diabetic chick? A goner who will die whatever I do? A hanging-in-there-fighter who will rally at the nth hour when I least expect it? I guess I'm wondering, any of you have skill as guessing the future? Reading other-than-chicken-entrails... good guessing... phone number of a chicken whisperer? I'm not begruding the chick her illness... just want to know wtheck!?
