Kids ran upstairs this morning saying one of the 2 week old chicks was laying on it's side not moving. I picked it up and was sure it was dead. Then it moved a little. I took it upstairs and ran it's butt under warm water (pasty butt.) We put it in a towel, blow dried it, kept it warm. It pooped twice! Then it did take some sugar water, but has not opened its eyes more than second. I dip it's beak in and it will put it's head back and swallow. It just lays there opening and closing it's mouth like it's throwing up? Very strange. Hubby is home with it now, keeping it warm and offering sugar water. Anything else I should do?
Dead chick back to life? Is there any hope?
