    I keep my chicks with a light bulb in a box 30 inches by 15, half of it is wire mesh then
    the food an water but every now an again i get a chick who's eyes are shut and i have to bathe them in water
    and keep a watch on them ,different species all the same just one in a while
    They have chick feed ,its the ground up one for starters ,a bit dusty like any powder
    any thoughts
    if i see them early its no problem but a while with no water or food they soon go down hill
