    hi im typing with one hand, cuddling my baby chick 1-2 weeks old who seems a bit off today. Not sure whats fully wrong. Im not sure if shes sick or not. She got pecked a bit this morning by a bit older chick (4-5 week old) this morning a few times on the back, and she may have been hurt by the cat last night. Shes quite and just happy to sit, not getting around much. Her sisters is up pecking at things and foraging. What are things to look for to check if anything is wrong? Is there anything I should be doing to be caring for her? Or could she just be resting from being pecked this morning?

    Thanks for any advice.
