Saturday, we went into a feed store wanting to learn more about chickens and ended up walking out with 3 chicks, food, a food container and water container. We had been discussing the idea for about 6 months. The guy that was helping us told us we didn't need a light to keep them warm. When I questioned it he reassured me that they would be fine. We brought them home and set up their new home. That night while laying in bed I started reading up on them more and realized that yes, they did need a light. Being that it was 10 pm at night my husband and I set a 60 watt light and put blankets around it to keep out the draft. They chirped all night long the next morning we went to the store and picked up bedding and a light. By the time we arrived home one of the chicks was in really bad shape. Once we setup the light she seemed to perk up, getting up to eat and drink. Then this morning she had taken another turn for the worse. I called the feed store (who wasn't open on Sunday) to let them know what was going on. The guy said that the Post Office had made a mistake and the chicks had been stuck there an extra day. They didn't know if they would be okay so they kept them an extra night before selling them. I was their 4th caller of the morning (mind you they opened just 20 mins before) to tell them something was wrong with the chick. The guy said everyone else said their chicks were lethargic....Sickly is more like it. I asked what we could do and he suggested putting pedialyte in their water. I then asked if she was to pass could we get another one to which I was told we would have to purchase another one. I have been feeding her water/pedialyte the last few hours from an eye dropper because she is too weak to drink. To say I am really disappointed in this feed store doesn't even begin to explain it. Any ideas/suggestions to keep her going? On a positive note, the other two are doing great.
