# Chicks: 2
-Chicks aren't walking (splay leg? their legs are towards the back)
Found two chicks by themselves. I'm not sure if they got lost or were left behind by the momma hen. There 10 siblings are doing great. Except these two that I found. They're moving around and won't stay still. There legs aren't working they're just wiggling around. I did find one with poopy vent (cleaned the chick up when I saw it) but the other chick didn't have poopy vent. When I brought them inside I tried to give them Poulty Red Cell mixed with water but they didn't like it very much. So I gave them drops of water every time they opened there mouth with 3ml syringe. Do you think they're dehydrated? what could cause them to go from chirpy like there siblings to mouth opened extending there necks every couple of seconds with there eyes closed.
