    I have 2 BLRW chicks from the same hatch on 9/9. One has doubled in size, acting like a normal little chick, eating and drinking normally BUT the other one has not grown. She is still super tiny, is eating and drinking fine, has very low energy level, and is very quiet. She has not grown any new feathers like her sister has. I really dont know what to do. We have gone through 3 "sav-a-chick" packets and they both are on sulmet. Im worried she isnt going to make it. Please help

    I dont know, sometimes that just happens. [​IMG] I raised about 70 chicks this year, and two did that for a while then died. I havent been able to find a problem other than they just wont grow. My own research and asking people here hasnt come up with much. I hope she makes it.
