    I just got my first 4 chicks this morning and three of them are acting the way I think they should. Cheeping, running around, eating drinking. But the 4th is just laying there. At first I was thinking she was just recovering from her big travel through the mail but now its becoming apparent that she isn't doing well. I've got her to drink a little water but no improvement. She physically looks okay. Is there anything I can do?

    Okay i may have been an over worried new parent, the one chick is now eating and drinking and seems to be doing much better. Fingers crossed for our new little ones!
