Does what you described just appear suddenly? None of the flock has been acting weird and seem their usual happy bird-self. I live on an isolated farm with one acre exercise pen for these chicks. I know they have eaten several tomatoes from the garden(organic) and some apples. This is one reason I thought she may have gotten hold of something that was bad for her...but again , no one else affected. I will continue to give what am giving now..will not use chemical treatment or injections...Do you further ideas/information on how to make her more comfortable?
Unfortunately, I lost her on Sat. She had began to breath better and drink a little water, but I guess she was too weak to pull through. Thanks for your advice. Am keeping a close eye on rest of flock at this time. I have also given them an antibody in their drinking water just in case, and added some vitamin mix to their feed. They get plenty of exercise space, sunlight, shade and treats. Our animals are our family and it always brings a little sadness when you lose one....we are all coping and trying to do it all a little better. Again, thanks. Diane
