I am new, both to this site and to keeping chickens. I have 8 baby chicks, they are about a week and a half old. One of them was pasted up pretty bad, and I removed the feces by soaking it off with a warm, wet washcloth. Now this chick doesn't seem to want to eat or drink, and keeps closing her eyes while standing up, even with all the commotion of the other baby chicks. I don't know what I should do, but I definitely want to do whatever I can to save this little one! The chicks are inside our house. They are housed in a large box, with a heatlamp on them. They eat medicated food. Everyone else seems fine except for her. Can someone please help me?
