I know this is a long shot but in case anyone has come across this before. I somehow managed to crush a 5 week old chick in the coop door. I picked it up quickly and it seemed shocked and then collapsed in my hands, went limp, eyes closed, neck went limp. But he is still breathing, although very quickly. I brought him inside and put him under a lamp. Every few minutes he seems to wake up and walk for about two seconds and then goes limp again. No external injuries but it is a heavy insulated door so I am assuming the internal injuries are probably intense. It has been about ten minutes since the accident. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
Edit to add->When I dip his beak into water, the tongue still moves to swallow, although the head and neck remains limp.
