    Chicken Eggspert
  1. Thanks.yeah i did consider dispatching but i worked with it for a bit cleared the fluid his breathing normal now chirping aswell still lathargic tho so u mite be right could just be exhasted ive pooed it bak in the brooder with the rest ill keep an eye on it and asses the situation in the morning
  2. hi i have a sick day old chick at first she appeared to be lethargic couple of hours after i put her in the brooder so i assumed she might need water as she was one of the first out so i thought mabey it was dehydrated but when i tried to give it some water it wouldnt take it so i used a small pipette and it drank down a couple of drops but now the chick is gasping as if struggling to breath i think maybe some water may have gotten in air ways its still alive not chirping or moving much other than the gasping is there anything i can do to try clear airways many thanks
  3. i just thought watered down ready brek would be easier to feed than chick crums i just gave some water but woke to find it dead
  4. Evening all I have hatched a few hatches without any problems but this time round I was hatching 2 different strains of the same breed with 1 incubator, now I know its not standard practice but I did read somewhere of someone doing just the same so I decided to try it,so to be able to tell which chicks were which I set them 2 days apart,the first hatched normal but the second were 2 days late the last chick to hatch is still very lethargic,not trying to move around or even lift his head.breathing labored at times as well with occasional gasping. Now I think because I was removing chicks from the first set I may have effectively shrink wrapped the second lot in there membrane so they could not move properly leading to too spending too long in the egg. Now because they were 2 days late does this mean they will have consumed there yolk sack and maybe the chick is dehydrated and hungry..if this is the case should I try give it something like ready brek and water...please advise many thanks
  5. so 1week on and the barred rocks are starting to get there wing feathers in but the campine x black rock started growing feathers after 3 days and now has all wing feathers and the start of a tail feathers is it normal to grow feathers after 3 days i thought 1 week was normal?
