    I just got my pea chicks about a week ago. They were doing great but today i noticed one was very doopy. i went in and its sleeping---i thought it was dead but it wasn't---usually when they see me they go to the farthest part. Then i put them outsiide. Its not as active as it was and it closes its eyes or lays down.but when im there it acts like its ok. I need your help i dont want to loose them. And there isnt anything else wrong with it bbesides its behavoir. The other pea walks around with the guinea keets while the other one sits by itself, and the other peachick calls him but he doesn't answer!!!!! HELP!!!!

    [​IMG] poor baby..
    Try this:

    Make some sugar water and poly-vi sol mixture and put some in a spoon and hold it up to it's beek so the beek is sitting in the mix, it will drink a little , feed it to it every 30 to 45 minutes till it perks up.

    I saved one of my baby peas this way and have saved many other birds also.

    If nothing else it will give them some energy to get threw what is bothering them before they starve or dehydrate

    Here's the mixture recipe:
    1cup of warm water to dissolve the sugar
    4 table spoons of sugar
    half a dropper of poly-vi sol

    Hope this helps the little one [​IMG]

    Just keep giving it to him/ her, it takes a little while to work but it is worth it, when mine did this i just wanted to cry but i knew it worked for guineas,chickens and ducks and it did worked for her to.
