Our 6 week old chick isn’t eating or drinking. Frequent eye closing. Some in flock has died of illness, we are trying to force feed her and she is taking the food if we help her, how often should we feed her?

What should we feed her? She is very lethargic. We are giving her medicated food and scrambled eggs

What were the symptoms of the ones that died? Have they had a heat source until their feathers grew in? Have they had any lethargy, runny poops, not eating, puffing up or hunched posture, or weakness? At this age if they have had those symptoms, you should treat them with Corid (amprollium) 2 tsp per gallon of water for 5-7 days, and make sure they are drinking the water.
