I have 3 two day old hatchlings that won't eat they will drink but won't eat, any tips?
Try putting something shiny in the food and water. That how I start my turkeys cause the peck the shiny quarter and get the taste of food that had work for me.
I will try that cause most of them eat but only like 3 of them won't thanks for the tip
You can also try adding warm water to feed(so it resembles oatmeal)most chicks love this and it is easier for the frail ones to eat.
I already made mush but they still won't eat it, is there a way where I can hand feed them?
Do you have anything in their water like Save-A-Chick or Quick Chick?
How are they acting compared to the chicks that are eating?
I also put a lil apple cider vinegar in the water (lake warm)
Yes, ACV is supposed to be great from what I have read. I am planning to pick up some with the "mother" this weekend. My chicks come off of their Save-A-Chick Saturday, I will also switch my ducklings to ACV when we get past the first week.
Mines have save a chick in their water and I thought acv was for pasty butts?
ACV has many benefits. There are lots of threads on BYC that talk about the many benefits.
How are the chicks that are not eating acting? Are they lethargic?
