These just arrived this morning. This little guy came extra in my McMurray order. First, what is he?
Secondly, he is very listless. Not warm, not eating or drinking (unless i put his beak in the sugar water) and not walking around. He has started chirping a bit when I rub on him. What can I do to get him back to help him out? (I know I may just lose him) The others are out in the barn in the brooder, along with 47 meat chicks that are in a separate brooder, but I didn't want to leave him out there to get trampled on and possibly smothered.
I am putting his beak in the sugar water every few minutes, hoping he just needs energy. I ordered an energy pack, but they didn't send it with my chicks. The others all seem just fine.
