Today, we have a sick chick. She’s actually had issues since we got her. We’ve done everything we can to assist her, but it’s still not looking good. This afternoon, while moving the chicks into their new home, we noticed the other chicks stepping on her. She is now quarantined. She has her own little setup within the brooder where the other chicks can’t peck at her, she can rest under the heat lamp and eat/drink without much movement. Unfortunately, I don’t have much hope for her. We have another chicken that looks to be the same type and she’s about twice the size. Our order came with one extra chick, so we will still have the 15 that we ordered. Still, there isn’t much bliss here today.
Tonight, I’m hoping for a miracle.
