    SOS RUNT CHICK we have a runt chick that keaps being pecked at and stepped on whats wrong with it it drinks plenty and eats little i have sperated it from the other chicks to keap it from being beaten up more she has been pecked in a eye today. she now has her own food and water source in her private box. she does have a window to see the other chicks and a wall to protect her from the other chicks but we are worried about her she doesnt move very often and stumbles once in a while. how do we make her healthy.
     
  2. All i can say is

    if she doesnt seem to be drinking enough water her out of an eye dropper

    she may just be weak and not live cause shes a runt, unless shes just a weak bantam chick sorry about your chickie [​IMG]
