    My black Iowa Blue is 2 weeks old and has been eating I dont see her drink water that often and is ALWAYS sleeping. She's been getting lots of poop stuxk on her butt feathers but not on her vent, i make sure to take those off for her. She's poopin well.The other two chicks would lay on her and then slightly nudge her but she wont get up from her laying position is she sick? If she is what does she have and how can if help her?

    I'm not sure, but pending expert advice, theres no reason not to add vitamin supplements / electrolytes to their drinking water.
    Good luck
