Baby silkie help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, we just got a flock of new baby chickens (6). We have an older flock (4) that are about a year old, so this is the second time we have raised baby chicks. Still new at this! We have one silkie baby that has not grown, can hardly walk, and uses her wings to balance her. She can barely stand also. She is one week and one day old. The others are flourishing! We have separated her from the others as she was getting trampled. Yesterday we started her on sav-a-chick. She is still so weak. She eats and drinks fine, her poop is normal. The problem is she is so weak that we have to help her eat and drink. Please help!!!! Thanks!
