    Hi, my little WCBP mix hatched Saturday evening, she seemed fine, gave her food and water yesterday and she still is not eating or drinking, she is pooping, kinda normal poop, she has a problem eating & drinking. when i put her face in the water and soft food she takes some b/c she has to, and then she stands straight up and seems to have trouble swallowing. her croop is emply.
    she has a crooked toe, also. I think she is starving. she can see but not well, she follows me, when i move around her, but she moves slowly, like she is only seeing shadows. she may be deaf also. I hink she has many problems, that i dont know of.
    has anyone encountered this kind of behavior before?
    Any suggestions on how to help her
    Oh, and she chirps/peeps constantly, until she is exhausted, i think b/c she is hungry, and maybe in pain.
    poor sweet little creature.
    [​IMG] can you see her crooked/twisted toe?
    [​IMG] she stands errect when she swallows her food or water. I have not seen her eat or drink

    So were there normal veins at first and they started disappearing?
    I'd be tempted to say it's a quitter.

    Might be wrong but seems there's a blood line to me, a quitter?
