    If she is day old, she might just be still a bit wobbly. Make sure she is warm and you can add Vitamina nd Electrolytes to her water if you wish.

    I have been giving her gatorade in her water. I got her to eat some egg yolk this morning. She can sit up now, but still not walking very well. She seems better, but still not quite up to normal yet.
