In the Brooder
- May 2, 2015
Hi, we are new to the chicken world and need some help. We just got our first batch of babies and there was one with splayed legs that the guy gave us for free because it was "damaged". If that was the only problem I think I would be fine but I don't think it is. She is weak, not eating or drinking on her own, and sleeps constantly. We got her to drink a little sugar water (by dripping it on her beak) in hopes of pepping her up enough to eat but she is still sleeping a lot. The others babies are all eating and drinking normally so I don't think it's a disease but I'm not sure how to help her best. Any advice is greatly appreciated as I'm already attached to her and don't want to lose her! Thank you in advance!
