Lol, he certainly is very fluffy now!
He has a few isues though. He has curled toes, so he already has little shoes on to straighten them out. Theres a step by step video on youtube (not made by me) on how to fix curled toes if anyone needs to help a chick with the same problem.
And hes a little weak lifting his head on his own for long periods of time. He seems to be getting better though, as i started him on sugar water last night, and he had a first dose of vitamins from the bird shop near me, and he perked up about 30 mins after that, and was sitting up and holding his head up without help, so fingers crosed he keeps improving.
He has no problem using his actual legs, hes feisty, and just pushes himself accross the floor of the brooder, and he cries a lot if i'm not with him. He's been having a few sips of sugar water from a bowl (obviously i have to bring the bowl to him, as he can't lift his head too well so i don't trust leaving a water bowl in the brooder.
He doesn't seem bothered about food right now, but i guess he still has the yolk to live off, so will see how he goes in a few days.
He freaks out in the brooder, and doesn't like the heat too much. So i tried a hot water bottle, and he loves it! He buries himself in the fluffy cover and sleeps with my fluffy sock covering him lol.
But yeah, he's obviously a weak chick, and i refuse to give up on him. He's still here, alert and very active, so obviously has strength in him. Will see how the shoes go lol, and hopefuly with a bit of help walking and some extra vitamins he should get stronger.
Wish us luck xx
