. . .are now in my brooder!
Chick one (japanese bantam, I think) is very lethargic, has difficulty walking and seems to fall to one side when trying.
Chick two (polish) is a little less lethargic, chirps at me when I hold him, has some difficulty walking and when trying to seems to walk more on his knees than his feet. Will occasionally peck at something when I am holding him but hasn't eaten in the brooder.
Chick three I am more worried about, seems to act more "neurologic", can't stand and falls over backwards when moving, with a head thrust forward. I am starting to worry that this chick could have a disease (of course did not think of this when bringing it home)? Are there any like this that a chick this young could have?
The other two seem more like weak hatches, with some hope for recovery. I have had them at home for about four hours now and have not seen them attempt to eat or drink. Should I attempt to "force feed" them? Chick two (the polish) get fairly energetic when I hold him and talk to him.
Any advice would be appreciated.
