    I have a 4 week old barred rock, orphington mix that I found yesterday morning not very responsive. She will not open her right eyebut half way but her left she can open the whole way. She is very tired and is not moving around much at all. I have separated her from the rest of the chicks and have given her Pedialite and crumbles. She is out of the main brooder and in a brooder by herself. She is drinking the Pedialite but she has not eaten from what I can tell. I will try giving her some baby food this morning. She was doing just fine up until yesterday around 9:30am. Any thoughts or ideas of what this is and how I can help her would be great! The temps around here are getting to the upper 50's at night (didn't know if this made a difference since they are in a brooder).

    Here is an update on the chick... she is now walking around the brooder, chirping, eating and drinking. I don't know if she got cold or stayed up too late with her friends partying and she was hung over. [​IMG] but she is on the road to recovery with pedialite and some baby food.
