Hi everyone - I am very new to chickens and just got my 6 chicks today (from My Pet Chicken) and one is not doing so well. Every time she tries to stand up she does a face plant and her eyes are not really opening. The other 5 are acting normal. I have her separated from the rest but I don't know what to do with this one! She chirps a little but mostly fall face first. Any advice?

Id suggest putting it back with mum, try give it water on a regular basis and it should pep up i had a young one who i thought I was going to lose who acted similar to yours but she came good without any help, some are just slow starters, but if you want to give it a helping hand try and give it water in a bottle cap and ever so slightly dip its beak in, but defiantly leave it with its mother.
