My friend has been nice enough to care for a Welsummer pullet chick for me... The pullet was the smallest of the chicks although it appeared for some time that the cause of the size difference could be attributed to the fact that the other Welsummers in the brooder were roos. My friend came in one day (several weeks ago) to find the baby chicks leg was trapped in the small wire on the floor of the cage and she was trampled by her bigger cage mates. We both think she may have a broken toe as she is slightly unstable and one toe is crooked, although after she seperated the chick she seemed to really improve. My concern is for her size and her feathers. She is almost 11 weeks but is tiny! She looks to be the size of a 6 weeks chick...and her feathers are so sparse. Some are missing, some are stubby and some seem almost twisted and dry. She is in my brooder now with a very healthy Naked Neck chick that is significantly younger but much healthier, feathered and the same size. The Welsummer chick is eating, drinking and pecking around, she seems a bit timid but also curious and bright. What more can I do for her? Is there something I could be adding to her food to help her? Also, what should I be keeping the brooder temps at for her? I just set everything up yesterday but need to get a thermometer this evening...For now I have the lamp several inches above the brooder, the chicks are in an old shower in my basement and seemed warm and active throughout the night. Any advice would be appreciated!
