    Hi guys, I have some 2 week old bantam chicks and all of them are progressing nicely except one. She is the smallest of the group and isn't growing as much as the others. She sleeps and has her eyes closed a lot and they're very watery. I'm not sure if this is relevant but I also noticed that she holds her wings funny. One side droops a lot more than the other. I don't want to lose her and I've grown really fond of the poor little thing. Help!

    hard to know what is wrong, but I would give her a few drops of Nutri Drench to her beak, one drop at a time. Can usually find it at Tractor Supply where they sell either poultry feed or where they keep the medications.
