    I posted a couple of days ago about chicks with having trouble walking. I took everyones advice. One is doing great. The other is not. I do not know what to do. Here are some pics. I have even changed the type of flooring they walk on. The other chicks are picking on it. Not the one doing good. Can someone please help me? Excuse the mess I took these just before I cleaned today for the 4th time. LOL [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes it can eat and drink. Yes vitamins. It can get up as long as the others dont knock it completely over. So I removed it. I put it in a box in the brooder where the others can not get to it. Thanks

    Sounds like it may just need the extra special care right now. Good job getting it isolated and safe. Did you give it a little stuffed animal to sleep against? And it is getting enough heat right? Keep up with the vitamins and remember to change it every day. I hope it gets better...it sounds like you're doing all that you can.

    Good luck!

    Have you put it in a cup to keep it upright? It may just be too weak.... [​IMG]

    I had one like that she just needed a few extra days help.I would keep her in a tea cup and take her out lots of times to eat and drink.she finally got strong enough and stopped falling over.
