We purchased some chicks at the local feed store last week, they're now 2 weeks old and they've all been doing great until yesterday. We have one little Road Island Red who is acting as though she is too weak to stand. The other chicks just bump into her and she falls over. We separated her from the rest, put her in a box in the house with her own light, food & water so we can watch her. If my son holds her up to the water she will drink & she'll eat if he puts her feed in front of her. She hasn't moved more than 5 inches all day on her own though. We've had hens for over a year, but these are our first chicks. Any suggestions?
