    A chick can live on its yolk reserve for a few days so sometimes health issues are not seen until after this point. First thing get some electrolytes. Second make sure your brooder isn't too hot. Warm zone 90 degrees and cool zone about 70 degrees. Try to dip the beak in the electrolytes water to see if it will drink
