    I just got new chicks from tractor supply, and one is weak. A friend suggested I feed it sugar water... how often do I do that? And do I do it through the night too?

    Give them electrolytes and vitamins. You should find them at your tsc.

    You could put molasses in water and feed it that.

    It could also be from some little or unejucated kid coming in with there parents and the parents have know control or dont care about what the kids do, then the kids pick up a chick and either throw it or drop it thinking it can fly. IDK how many i have seen injured or DEAD from that happening. No effense to kids or parents but that is just irresponsible. Sorry for just rambling on but that could be whats wrong with it also.
