    Our first mail order from Ideal arrived this morning. 11 speckled sussex and 11 c marans. One of the CMs is weak, can barely stand. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks

    I'm sorry, I don't know enough to advise with authority. Did you dip it's beak into water? Is it drinking or eating? I've read that some people put Polyvisol vitamins in the water (no iron). I do hope it makes it through.

    Thanks all, false alarm. Went back to check the broder later to find all running around. Couldn't even tell which was the weak one. Must of just getting her sea legs.
