I had a young woman hand off 3 baby chicks to me today. She said she had gotten 4 for her kids (2 years old, if that) "for Easter." Ug. One had already died and she just couldn't figure out why. The 3 remaining chicks were in a plastic tote, no bedding for traction at all, I'll be lucky if they're not spraddle legged. Let's face it, I'll be lucky if they survive at all. They had not been fed. She said she had them for 5 days and "had tried feeding them worms." They had no water and no heat lamp. I don't know how they survived this long. So right now I have them under a heat lamp, with some bedding, chick feed and clean medicated water. I have Corid and Duramycin in their water. My question is about their gullet area. The 2 yellow ones (I think white rock crosses) are horribly swollen. The little darker on (of questionable heritage) is swollen but not nearly as bad. I've heard of giving olive oil for this but have no experience with it myself so I wanted to ask for advice here. The pics don't show the swelling very good, but hopefully you can get the idea. ------ Honestly, I can't stand it when people buy animals and don't know the first thing about keeping them alive!!!!
