    Have a group of 6 1 week old chicks went in the room today to do usual things like food and water and the "runt" is weak wont stand pretty much wont even open his/her eyes i have given drops of water off my finger. This has happened all of a sudden was always quieter then the rest but the last set had a "runt" to and now he/her is fine.

    I think there's something called Save A Chick and Poly Vi Sol (WITH NO IRON) you need to supplement.
