    I expected this baby chick to not be alive this morning. It really wants to live but it's so tired. Is there anything I can do to help it??[​IMG]

    Poultry Nutri-Drench. A single drop in the mouth every 8 hours, and put 1/2 TSP in a qt of water every day. Change out the water every day.

    Hello-

    Did the chick just hatch? Can you give it some water that has electrolites in it to help perk it up? Does it look like anything is wrong with it's little legs? Does the chick show interest in eating and drinking at all? Is it peeping alot like it may be in distress?

    One thing is to be sure the chick stays warm. Sometimes they do just fade away and you never know why. Maybe something is not quite right internally. There's always hope though....

    I agree with lazy Gardener! you need Bovidr Labs Poultry Nutridrench for this chick because this nutritional supplement does not need to be digested like the electrolytes. you need to get energy to this chick fast.
    Nutri drench mainlines directly into the bloodstream. it is measurable there in 11 minutes.
    it's not what you give them it's what they can absorb .
    it will help jump-start the GI tract, help restore the immune system ,combat travel stress, pasty butt, and the runs. the molasses in it will encourage growth of the correct bacteria in the GI tract. HTTP://www.nutridrench.com
    I get mine at Tractor Supply.
    you can also get it at your feed store.
    Best,
    Karen
