:One of my new chicks is really dinky. I got them on Friday, so they are 5 days old today. She was the smallest then and remains so today. The others seemed to have doubled in size, but she remains small an sleeps a lot, much like 4H kids and mom recently posted about one of her chicks. While changing the bedding today, she was standing in the corner of the brooder sleeping, while everyone else was busy eating, drinking, climbing all over my hands and trying to taste my 'jellybean' fingernails. So I stupidly tell myself, 'Aww, cummon PeeWee,' yes, I'd already named her, pick her up and try to interest her in the water. She wakes, drinks, seems ok, I put her back. PeeWee wanders around aimlessly ('uh-oh') gets pushed around by her sisters who are hustling and bustling, and manages to go back to her corner ('hmm' I thinks to myself). I take her out, check her over, no pasty butt, and put her in her own little box under my desk lamp with me here by the keyboard. Shavings under a towel, sprinkled a little stater food on the floor, and a tiny container of water with marbles in it. Begin to search threads for suggestions. 'PEEp,PEEp,Peep!' PeeWee is not happy to be alone. I lift the top to see that she managed to completely soak herself from the neck down in her water dish, then rolled all over the feed. Her own little version of shake'n'bake. I am such a dope, but I didn't have any other container for water that would fit in there. I never thought she'd go for a swim!! So now I go through a bunch of kleenex to try to dry her off. Got her wrapped in in my hand as I type, took pics,woops, big ol poop, reajusts, I clean up my desk, keyboard, hand , and last pic is how she fell back to sleep. She seems strong, pushes and stands on her feet, but I'm at a loss as to what to do about her lack of interest in eating. Tried boiled egg yesterday. help?
