    muscadine, al.
    I'm giving the chick sugar water and it's taking a small bit. Please anyone with some advise help me. I don't know what to do and I'm in a rural area so supplies are limited. Please say anything except cull. I'm putting the chick in a brooder with temp's up over 90. BRK going to try more sugar water.
