Hi, I am new to the forum, and new to having chickens. I recently became the owner of a 1 day old meat hen who has some issues. Not only does he have scissor beak, he is also missing an eye. Because of this, he does not seem to be able to eat on his own. I have been trying to syringe chick started mixed with water but it keeps clogging my syringe. It was suggested to me to add some powdered baby food so I have done this. He was doing really well until today. He seemed very quiet and has some feces, black in color, in cage and stuck to his feathers around his cloaca. I am trying to remove them without getting him wet. I was told to only feed 3 times a day but feel he is getting skinny. I used to feed baby birds and we always fed every 2 hours, shouldn't I do the same for him? Also, any advice on what i can feed him that would be easier to syringe would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to save the little fella life. He was destined for the grinder.
