    What is your brooder temperature? What are you feeding? Do they all have access to water, and are they safely out of drafts?

    Just getting the basic questions so we can eliminate the obvious stuff. If your chick's bottom is very crusty, you might carefully hold her little bottom under warm running water and gently wipe off the crusty stuff. Gently dry the chick and place back under the heat lamp. Never pick the crust off, as you can damage the chick.

    Hope that helps. Please keep us posted on how chick is doing! [​IMG]
