This past Thursday at 6:30am the post office called and said my 4 chicks arrived from Meyer hatchery, one of each: RIR, Jersey Giant, Light Brahma, EE. I got them home and opened the box the poor things were chilled, shaking and huddling together despite the heating pad under the bedding in the box. The Light Brahma was by her self though, trembling terribly. It was dark, cold and misty that morning, a bad chickie weather day to say the least. When I got home, I immediately put them in the brooder with the heat lamp and set up a second heat lamp as well. I filled the 1 quart waterer with lukewarm water and mixed in 1 tablespoon Poultry Nutri drench. I dipped their beaks in the waterer and they were very thirsty. I could tell my problem child was going to be the Light Brahma as she was still shaking. Later on I removed the second heat lamp. My wife spent most of the day nursing and coaxing the Light Brahma to move around in the brooder. She used to be a nurse (MA.) I still had to dip the chicks beak in the waterer often. The other chicks recovered nicely and eventually started eating crumbles. Later in the afternoon, the Nutri Drench did its job with the Light Brahma. The chick stopped shaking and was drinking on her own, but still hadnt eaten. Late in the evening the Light Brahma started eating and she finally pooped. She has since made a full recovery and is doing great. She's had poopy butt twice (Sharon's eyes spotted it) and I cleaned her up. Phew! In pic #003, the chick at the top left is the RIR, below her is the Light Brahma. At the top right is the JG and below her is the EE. I forgot to add that I'm getting 3 Speckled Sussex chicks today and will put them in the same brooder. I'll take pics of them later today.
