sometimes you need to gently dip their beak in the water to show them...you ony need to do that once or maybe twice..and future chicks will follow th elead

I always have food/water in the brooder at ALL times..most everyone does..

just dip her beak in it gently..she'll be fine!

however; did u take her out of the incubator before she was dried/fluffy?

do you have a heat lamp going w/the temp about 95

I wasn't prepared for all the flailing in the incubator and it wasn't safe. I left he in as long as I could until she dropped down to where the water was supposed to be. Thankfully it was all dried up and I had been using papertowels. She is in with her own light which is around 95
Did I do something wrong by moving her too soon?
