    hi, about 2 months ago I bought 5 chicks ay the market, I later noticed that they all had missing toes (looked inbred). 2 of them died a couple weeks ago, and this morning the last weak one (the other 2 are triple its size and completely fine) is probably about to die. I do feed it warm honey water, warm wet bread, but itl only eat when im there and via a syringe. Splash (thats her name) hates chicken food even when its ground down, but is partial to budgie seed on her bread. any ideas on what i should do? she's very weak and is the only one left in the brooder(the others are in the coop. HELP ME!

    A good thing to do in this situation is to ask a vet. If the missing toes were a sign of them being inbred, there could be more wrong with them.
