Emergency Help Please

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I have 10 total chicks that have hatched. One hatched today about 8 hours ago. I noticed that it seemed to have trouble walking in the incubator so I took it out and inspected it an then stuck it in the brooder. It seems to have trouble walking, is breathing slightly harder than the other chicks (not panting), and seems weak. Is this just cause it's a new chick or is something wrong? Please help!

Give it a bit of water with some molasses, corn syrup of honey to give it a energy boost. If it is still weak after hatching 8 hours ago it may not make it. Important question here, did it come from a pullet or abnormally small egg?
