    I just got my bantams in today and all made it alive! I do have one who drinks plenty but seems to sleep more than eat. I mean, she does eat a little...but not neatly the quantity as the others. I have save-a-chick in the water now and I am planning on doing a day of ACV tomorrow. I tried watering down some of the feed for her, but she wasn't a fan of eating it. She is asleep quite a bit, but she did one charge across the brooder and promptly fell asleep. Sould I be worried? Or is this just first day home tiredness?

    The others are currently chasing each other around with a shaving (tag) but she could care less about them running like mad. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    Forgot to add, she is by far NOT the smallest chick in the batch. She almost seems just a little "spacey". Her poop is mostly liquid with a very small amount of solid in the center. They were hatched in Monday.
