    granny's thread continues here: Granny's gone and done it again

    i have tried my best to stay home just in case the chicks were in at tsc, i went today to buy food after finding out the chicks are sold out. and guess what? ya, hit up orchlens too.hahah they only had 2 buff orphingtons.they were soo quite i knew something was wrong. one seems fine the other is very weak. i have never had them before, i know im not spelling it right .anyway , the weak was was sitting there couldnt walk because the wire was too big on the floor and its feet was going through. i have giving it sugar water but wondered about insure ? that drink with all the vitamin. in it , you know, for all those other old people. there is nothing in its crop except the water i gave it and i am sure if it fell in the water it couldnt get back out. any suggestions????

    Granny, Ensure might have a bit too much milk in it, and could cause diarrhea, but someone may correct me on this. It is mostly sugar, proteins and vitamins. But I suppose it will do if you don't have any other poultry vitamins. Weak chicks do well on vitamins and sugar in the water. I would get this little one in his own brooder and under more heat. 98 to 100 degrees. Weak babies need more heat than healthy ones. Make sure he at least drinks. Offer him up hard boiled eggs as well. Great emergency food for babies. Weak or sick babies don't eat their regular food much, so egg is a great food to get them going.

    If the chick fell in the water, you might want to dry him off so he doesn't chill.

    You just HAD to go and do it! [​IMG]
