One of my chickens hatched five eggs, but one of the chicks is not eating and has probably not eaten since it was born 4 days ago. It just stands there and peeps.

I've been dropping water ground up food down it's throat and its mother pecks it to try to get it to eat, but nothing. Anybody have any ideas? It seems pretty strong.

Not to give you bad news but I have found that the chicks that do that dont make it. The chick might have something wrong with it. But I am no expert.
