Hi everyone, newbie here. Long story short I got a bitty (3-4days old), was found by my grandmother a couple days ago. A hen had 3 bitties including this one, been cold weather, pretty sure chick is dehydrated/malnourished/etc. my grandmother had to get it up b/c hen and others left it behind and it couldn't really run at all. I've had it in a small cardboard box with a heating pad on low power with paper towels in between to keep from overheating. Pretty sure temp is fine there. Chick done good 2 nites ago and would drink water out of mini-cup/peck boiled egg yoke mixed with that electrolyte packet mix for farm animals/poultry. Last nite the bitty wouldn't eat hardly a mouthful, had to use eye dropper to give it water/electro mix. And tried to be careful not to make the chick aspirate/get fluid in lungs. Chick would just cherp real loud for the hen (me...) and would run into my hand and hide/crawl up my shirt sleeve. Only thing that calms it down. Today, chick about the same...pecked at some ground up bird seed I put in box a few times and drank some water solution, but ultimately the same...calling out loud for the hen and wanting to hide(stays up under teddy bear in its box). I took it outside and set it on ground, it'd peck at everything for a minute....then start the crying thing. I've tried to encourage it/hold my hands around it for comfort but it just runs up in my hand and cries. So what can I do here? It's just not really taking the initiative to feed itself much at all. It's poop was all clear yellow (diarrhea) 2 days ago but now black/brown/clear/yellow mixed which I'm sure is much better. No pasty butt, took care of that first day. It seems quite active at times but tires very easy, eyes half-closed until stimulated by touch/voice/etc. Btw of all things, my grandmother's dog killed the hen and other two chicks today....unbelievable but yeah. So I can't just put it back with hen when it's a little stronger. Any info/help really appreciated, thanks!
