    My husband and I got 3 new chicks that are only a few days old. When we first brought them home, the Polish was doing fine, though she's smaller than the other chicks. Today she's very lethargic and won't open her eyes. We've fed her with an eye dropper but she can't stand up anymore. Any advice? We don't want to lose her [​IMG]

    I believe I read that Polish chicks can't handle shipping as well as other birds. I'd separate her and make sure to start giving her electrolytes.
