So I acquired a chick from a friend. They got 100 chicks on Saturday. They orginally thought the chick was blind, but it just does not open its eyes very much. If I hold water up to it, it will drink a little bit. I dont think that the chick is eating very much. I am syringe feeding it starter mix with warm water, but while feeding the chick its like she just falls asleep. She will swallow really good and then just stops and relaxes, but the she will startle herself and then start taking food from the syringe again. I am also not sure how many mls she should be eating. I have been feeding her every couple of hours and keeping her under heat. Any suggestions?
