    I have a one day old baby chick that can't poop. She squats over and pushes but nothing comes out. Her mamma has been setting all summer and has already lost one baby i don't want her to loose another. I think it's because she is lacking water. she won't drink it and peeps every time i stick her beak in the water. I added some olive oil into her bedtime snack and added in water too. How can i get her to drink the water?

    I'm not sure if this would work but what if you fed it watery foods. Like cucumber. I mean you would have to put it in s food chopper because it's so young. Will it drink from an eye dropper?

    She hates it and doesn't let us get it in her beak. we got a few drops in but she wouldn't let us get any more in.

    Is it eating? Will it maybe eat crushed up or chopped up prunes?
    I'm sorry.
