In the Brooder
- Jun 4, 2009
One of my chicks hatched and is really healthy and strong, but another one hatched yesterday and doesn't look good. It had some stuff coming out of its belly button (but thats healing in now) and it lies down loads. Its feathers were really sticky and still haven't properly dried out. There was a lot of blood in the egg. It can't walk properly yet and it hasn't eaten or drank anything, but it tries feebly to peck sometimes. It hasn't cheeped once yet either, but it kind of gasps with its mouth opoen every now and then. When it pooped it just was all watery and red-ish and it didn't come out properly so I cleaned it up so he doesn't get pasted up. What is wrong with it? Please can anyone help me? it looks so sorry for itself and I don't know what to do.
