Have a chick question. I am getting a lot of chicks this time that seem too start feathering real fast. We are talking days old! Then the wings either fluff out and droop or the feathers stick almost straight Out. The chicks are puny and listless and aren't doing well. Reckon it's not enough protein or to much or not enough heat or to much? What should I give them. I have been putting sugar and electrolytes in their water. They are on strictly purina medicated started. Seems to effect the bantams more . Think I should go to game bird starter?
do they huddle together? what is the poop like? try giving them vitamins polyvisol without iron, give them some egg yok also, easy to digest and something their systems are used to, also make a gruel of crumbles in their water, that way they get some nutrients
moved lea to bathroom tub aka broody nest, moved the babies out to the small coop, i swear, lea goes broody just for the attention
