So, we got the call yesterday morning from the PO telling us our chicks had arrived. We hurried over, opened the box, and all were alive. We drove home quickly. As usual, each was taken one at a time and beak dunked into the water and left there to see if it would continue drinking. Though, once you get through about 15 or so, things get a little crazy in there and you can have a hard time keeping track. Anyway... A few hours later we noticed one very lethargic. We then added a second waterer to the brooder, this one with a teaspoon of sugar, and forced it to drink. Unfortunately, we could not do the same with food. After looking at the forums, and trying everything we could find, including scrambled egg, nothing was seeming to work and she was getting weaker. Then my wife had an idea. They survive the first few days on absorbed egg yolk. How about we try that? So took a fresh laid egg from our flock, separated the yolk, and poured some in a small cap. Then took the chick out every half hour, and dipped her beak in the yolk just like you would with water. It stayed weak, and after doing this for hours, we went to sleep, and left it up to fate. When I woke this morning, it was still alive, against everything we expected. I gave it a water dunk, and then cracked another egg yolk into a cap. This time, I didn't have to do any dipping. It stood on my counter in front of the cap and ate like crazy. When it stopped, I placed it back in the brooder, and it ran over to the water. So just a heads up to anyone with a lethargic chick from a shipped order that won't eat...try the raw egg yolk. Never know...might just do the trick...for now on, we'll be doing this immediately upon finding a chick that isn't as active as the others, or doesn't seem to be eating.
