We just got MORE chicks, and one of them looks really ill. The chicks were 2 days late to the store, and they were dying left and right there!

Now one of our new buffs is just sitting there, peeping nonstop, it won't eat, it weighs nothing, it can bearly move! Please help?

make sure it gets water (preferably w/ sugar in it for some quick energy) immediately, and try to get them to eat. If you have some chick starter, use warm water and make a mash out of it. Put a few grains in the chick's beak but make sure not to force food back too far into the throat or it can aspirate it into the air sacs and get pneumonia. If you're skilled at it, chicks can be tube fed but it is somewhat tricky and NOT for a novice. I hope your chick recovers. Keep it warm and do your best to get some nourishment in it asap.
