I'm posting this as a separate thread because I've had some experiences with chicks that appear normal except they don't seem to have the inborn inclination to peck at food and drink water. There doesn't appear to be anything physically wrong. Sometimes you think they may be blind, but usually you can rule that out. When I managed a thoroughbred horse farm, I delivered over 200 foals and every now and then you would have a "dummy foal" that didn't have the instinct to nurse or even pick at the hay. I'm sure it was some sort of brain damage. Sometimes, with good supportive care, they would come around...many times not and would require euthanizing. Have any of you had similar experiences...and how did you treat or handle the chicks. Obviously, some of them require culling...I'm more interested in your experience in getting them over it. How did they do? What did you do?
