I am a first timer...I purchased 9 Rhode Island Reds about 2 weeks ago. I went to the feed store to get more food today and there was 1 single baby in the box all by itself shivering (at the store). My kids instantly wanted to save it; as did I...so my husband agreed. The store let me take this single baby home since it had no others to help keep it warm. I placed it in the coop with my 2 week ones; and they weren't really fond of the baby; so I made her her own little area in a box inside my living room. I have a microfiber washcloth and a small little heat light. She curls up underneath the washcloth and light and sleeps quietly. I keep check on her because I want her to make it! Should she be eating and drinking more than she is?(sorry I keep calling her a she-I just want her to be a girl )...I have been taking her out every couple hours and showing her where the food is. She sits down and eats a few pecks and then I show her where her water is, and she makes no attempt to drink. She just stays in the sitting position. I dip my finger in the water and place it on her beak and she will make a slight attempt to take water drops off my finger. But then goes over and curls up under the cloth/light. I saw people say something about sugar water? What is that for? What can I do to make sure she's drinking?
