How do I help my chick get better?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My chick has its head down and wings away from its body (as it is cooling off) This is a baby. It has been in with its siblings. But I put it in a separate cage with food and water. It cant move its head. It cant support its head. I also put electrolytes in its water. Should I give it vitamins? How do I help it get better? Will it get better? Please help. I am new with chickens I have only had chickens for about a year. I dont know all of the diseases. Thank you.

Electrolytes are great, if it is eating you can try to give it some hardboiled yoke. Yes you can try vitamins. Some chick's just do not make it. And some chick's will recover only to die later. Just do the best you can for the little one and keep her nice and warm.
