I'm very new to BYC & very new to raising chicks (:
My dad and I hatched our first chicks a couple days ago using an incubator we got from a friend.
There are 8 two day old chicks so far & all are doing great except for 2.
One of the two cannot walk (can't stand up & is always laying down- acting really tired and weak; also doesn't
drink water or eats its food- rarely has his/her eyes open)
And the other one can stand up but something is wrong with his/her right leg. The other ones fine but
the right leg is bent up. It's not sliding out to the side but instead bending up. I used the band-aid method
for both of them since it worked for my other 2 day old chick that had splayed legs. Oh & this one isn't opening
his/her eyes either /:
I'll attach a video since the pictures didn't come out as well & you can actually see what I'm talking
about in the video.
Any advice/tips will be much appreciated!! (:
