    Advice please- 3 day old keet lying on its side, opening mouth. Lethargic and floppy. Soaked turkey starter in water and it drank some. What is wrong and what can I do? Thanks in advance!

    It may not have absorbed all of the yoke and is lacking protein and vitamins. You could cook up a egg (no oil) and mash is up to feed the chick. You can also give it some Poly-vi-sol (childrens liquid vitamins) or Sav-a-chick (available at farm fleet stores like Tractor Supply) Good Luck and [​IMG]
