I have a 1 week old chick that I don't think has eaten since it hatched. I tried giving it water but i never saw it drink or eat on it's own. Today it was ok this morning then a few hours later it's laying on it's side with it's head bent all the way backwards, eyes closed and not doing much. I gave it several doses of Pedialyte and that seems to have done the trick. Now it's standing up, weak, but it's up! Now the trick is, how do I teach it to eat? I guess I thought I wouldn't have to! This is my first experience with hatching chicks. This is the only surviving chick out of 6, but I've been keeping it with a 1 month old bantam who has taken the baby on as her own! I was hoping maybe the bantam would teach the baby how to eat! The bantam and the baby are very close, I don't think the baby would have fought as hard to stand up if it wasn't for the bantam! So what can I do to get the baby to eat?
