    Does the chick have enough heat? Quik chick in the water? (vitamins and electrolytes) I would even put a drop on the beak to get him to try to drink it. Put something less slippery under their feet. I've heard that flat cardboard can cause foot problems. Don't let him get trampled by others. I'm so sorry it is so painful to watch.

    I posted on one of your other threads, maybe stick with just one thread so you don't have to keep answering the same questions.

    paper towels for footing.
    dip the beak to make sure they drink
    food sprinkled on the floor to make sure they eat but it looks long past finding its own food.

    Is the other chick eating and drinking? I don't see a heat lamp or food.

    Can you please tell us if they have a heat lamp and what you are feeding them. I haven't seen these questions answered yet on any of your threads about these chicks.

    Yes, it is hard to watch, it's hard for all of us and It's hard on the chicks too. We really can try to help if you will help us with the information we've asked for.
