Two young chicks 15 July 2011

Liz writes on 15 JULY:

One of the two newly hatched chicks is not thriving like its sibling.  We are struggling to get it to eat, unlike the sibling who is voraciously eating both mosquitoes and foodpellets.  We are trying everything we can think of to get it to eat, and have examined everything we think could be physically wrong with it.

Nigel, Martin and Roland are busily trying to get the outside pens finished while Liz is inside working with the chicks.
