Yesterday afternoon, I let the babies out. Was horrified to see one, and then upon closer inspection several more of them stumbling around. Appeared to be weak and have poor balance. Most noticeable in proximal leg muscles. So, my poor brain started scrambling... difficult hatch with several assists, poor bator temp regulation. Almost half of the chicks were from shipped eggs. Chicks are 6 weeks old. They've been feasting on Creeping Charlie, which no other animal that I know of will eat. Last week, I was talking with a fellow at the hardware store re: chickens and such, and my plan to dry Creeping Charlie for nest boxes as it seems that nothing will eat it. He says even his goats won't touch it... but my chicks seem to love the stuff. Neuro toxin? Mareks? Then, I remembered how miserable I was with temp up to 89*. I came in, did a quick google for: home made gator aid. 5 minutes later, I had a qt. of strawberry gator ade, Both babies and adults seemed to enjoy it, and drank quite a bit. The chicks were moving much better within 1/2 hour. Today, they seem to be just fine. Recipe that I adapted: 1/2 C hot H2O, scant 1/2 tsp salt, scant 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp flavored jello. Mix well and add 3 1/2 C cold H2O. Edit: I left out one very important ingredient. Be sure to add 2 1/2 TBSP sugar!!!
