    We got home last night and found one of our healthy chipmunk chicks just laying down hardly moving. I picked her up and tried to get her to drink off my finger but she didn't want it. This morning she was moving around a little more for a while, but now she just stands by herself and almost falls over falling asleep.No pastey butt, Temp is around 90. The other chicks are running around peeping a little so I don't think it's the temp. Yesterday there was a boxelder bug in the brooder and one of them must have eaten it b/c it's not in there anymore.
    Could bugs be bad for young chicks? I don't know what else it could be.
