One of my EE chicks (a little over a week old) is acting lethargic and shows little to no interest in eating. It just wants to lay down. I just know it will die if I let it. I dipped it's beak in the water, and it drank, and I made a mash to feed it and after about 40 mins of coaxing... I did finally get it to eat something, though very little. Questions..... my DH (and no, today D does NOT stand for dear!) had opened the windows last night to cool down the house... I had no idea until I got up this morning and saw all my chicks huddled under the lamp! Could this have caused her to get ill??? If I do get her to eat something here and there... will it be enough to sustain her until she perks up? If so, how often should I coax her to eat?? (I also have a very demanding 1 1/2 year old to contend with until 3 pm) Should I try giving her sugar water... or will this make her feel worse when the sugars wear off? I don't have access to a car until after 3.... should I go buy vitamin drops for her then? If so... do I go to the feed store and get something for chickens? Or can I go to the pet store and get something for pet birds? What do I need to look for? I am thinking of seperating her and a few lesser-aggressive chicks into their own brooder. If so, how many should I put with her for comfort and companionship??? Having someone eat the mash next to her seems to help... but too many and she gives up and gets pushed aside.
