Hello every1 i got two 45days old alexandrine chicks 2 days ago. The problem is that one seems more healthy n eats well when i feed him cerlac and also tries to bite if i take my hand near him. Whereas the other one does not eat unless i force.. Also he is lighter than the other.. What could be the reason???

Also what is the ideal weight for this age? How often and how much to feed?
I tried feeding 15ml but after they vomitted i reduced to 10ml thrice daily

If you can access the person who sold you these birds return to them for help. Otherwise the bird veterinarian or a different experienced breeder. Good luck!

My Alexandrine Hen weighs in at 257 grams and is under weight, should be 300 but she had laid 11 eggs this year!
