    Just picked up 12 of these they had them labeled as Araucanas but the pictures I see are quite a bit different. One of them is very inactive compared to the others and is almost constantly chirping

    If you got them from a feed store its very likely that they are Easter Eggers

    Thanks y'all. Well instead of starting a new topic is there anything I can do to help this one chick. I finally got it to start drinking and got it to open its eyes for a few minutes. There doesnt appear to be any gunk or swelling. It just sits in a corner by itself and hardly movea around.

    You could also try Liquid vitamin B. I have used it with success in the past.

    I prefer calf manna (powder version) over electrolytes. But many don't know what it is, so I don't usually list it.

    It died yesterday sometime after I left for work. The other 11 are doing good. 3 days old now. I appreciate all the replies. Back to coop building. [​IMG]
