In the Brooder
- Apr 14, 2014
I have a chick that sometime between last night and this morning managed to get herself under a box cover that was in the brooder to keep the water raised. I think she must have been crushed by the other chicks as they walked on the cover to get to the water as she was pretty squished up when I found her. I cannot see any injuries however she won't open her eyes or get up and just lays there breathing heavy. I have moved her into a box with her own heat lamp and food and water, but I'm not seeing any improvement. Any advice would be appreciated as I've never dealt with a situation like this before.
