    Looking for some help or suggestions. I have a 3wk old Dominique that isn't eating well, she is constantly standing (even to sleep), seems to prefer support from either another chick or the side of the brooder and her feathers are ruffled. I noticed she wasn't eating starter pellets (medicated) today. I offered her some meal worms which she did eat fairly well. She is drinking small amounts electrolytes. Anyone have any idea what could be going on or what I could try to do to help?
