    OK, send the pic's, I would just try and keep his strength up for now. How weak is he/she?? If you pick it up and put it back down can it stand up [​IMG] or does it fall down?? [​IMG] Hope I can help

    I think your doing all you can for her to make it.
    Sometimes with shipping chicks there is usually one or two chicks that don't make it through because of stress. [​IMG]
    Make sure she doesn't have a pasty bottom, sometime that can make them weak. [​IMG]
    Please keep me posted about how she's doing, [​IMG]
