I had one chick hatch from shipped eggs with very damaged air cells. We are all very much in love with this clingy sweet super tiny chick. But...she won't eat. She won't drink. She wants to be cuddled and sleep. She got pasty butt last night and her vent is a little red. I think its from not eating. She actually hatched about 29 hours ago but she clearly needs food. She is still very unsteady on her feet. How do I force her to eat? I love her so much.
