Went to the feed store to get more starter for my 12-day-olds. They are my first and are doing so well. At the feed store, there was a little bantam or runt chick sleeping by itself. When I reached down to pick it up, it didn't protest at all and just layed in my hand. The owner said they got the chicks last Wednesday. This baby was so tiny, the feeder was too tall for it, and they were feeding huge crumbles. There's no telling how long the baby was laying in that spot. I told the owner I'd take the chick, and he said I could just have it. I took her home, and she peeped a bit, a good sign. She would open one eye at a time. I got her home and eyedroppered sugar water into her. She drank readily, although her eyes remained closed. She stood on her own once, but mostly stumbled backward, and slept. I then gave her aviacharge 2000, that went fine. Then pulverized starter mixed with water into a slurry. Seemed fine. Pooped twice, the latter, clear, with a few greenish solids. A little later, after picking her up, a lot of what I'd given her came bubbling out. I sucked it from her beak because she seemed to be strangling. She is now sleeping. Whatever position you put her in, she stays. I think she's crashing. I thought the nutrients would make a miracle in these last three hours, but I'm afraid I'm killing her with all my kindness. If you have any thoughts or advice, I would appreciate it.
