My chick

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
One of my chicks sleeps all day even when I pick her up she will sleep in my hands. Is this normal?

Hi and welcome to BYC. Whilst I'm no expert, I'd suggest that its not normal for a chick to be lethargic all the time. Maybe you could give them vitamin supplements / electrolytes in their water and see how she goes on.

 

All the best

How old is she?  Is she eating and drinking   and  pooing?  If so  maybe hatching was extra hard on her.

Sleeping all the time is not normal. CTKen has given you a good idea and Drumstick diva has asked some good questions. Hope they help.

 

Good luck!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
