I just received 15 chicks from McMurray Hatchery on Wed! I am so excited! I bought a prefab coop and small run but I know now I will be adding to that! My chicks are so cute and changing daily! I'm glad to have a forum where I can ask all the questions I'm sure I will have.
I have a chick I just noticed is a little ruffled up and just standing there. I gave her a little sugar water to perk her up. I hope it helps. I am going to get some yogurt tomorrow. They are getting probiotics and electrolytes in their water.
Beautiful assortment - what breeds did you order? You can also get Polyvisol pediatric vitamin drops from a drug store, Walmart etc. For very young chick I would suggest 2 drops 3 x a day. You can put the drops just inside the beak, so if it doesn't want to swallow it can push them out.
