    I just got eight new babies, and yesterday they were fine, all walking, chirping, etc. But my mom turned off their heat lamp for a bit and when I got home, I swore my favorite one was dead. I put him near the heat lamp and now hes awake and chirping, but he can't seem to walk or stand. Please help me![​IMG]

    Just keep him under the heat lamp at all times. Make sure he has plenty of water and grit. I also recommend putting electrolytes in their water.
    Hope he/she gets well soon!

    I'm sorry for your loss. They may have gotten chilled when the lamp was off. Parents love to turn off lights after everyone, worrying about the electric bill. Maybe that's what happened.
