    okay so i got more chicks today from somo and after getting them home i noticed a problem with one. it just sits there, doesn't open it's eyes, wobbles, and when it pooped just a white stringy glob came out. what is wrong with this chick? is there anything i can do? should i separate it from the other chicks?

    okay so i forced it to drink a couple times and it opened it's eyes ever so slightly for a brief moment. does anyone have any suggestions?
     
  3. Seperate him! sounds like he has worms but if hes the only one unlikely, try and feed him some egg yolk or sugar water

    thats all i got
