Please don't rescue anymore chicks, you don't know what you are doing. Chicks don't get toys, because they eat dam near anything ,second why would you put a chick on a bed? Do you not know they are fast by nature and now because of your recklessness he will more than likely die just like the other chick. I can't believe you did those things they are not a cat or dog. Find a farm and give them that chick at least he will have a better chance of survival..
Maybe you might want to read this @CHRISTINE BOLES and even apologize to her:

:hugsSaainya, get some photos, you mention his legs are swollen. It may be that there's nothing you can do and he may not recover, but I would like to see. A sling is probably a good idea to help take some weight off the legs for the time being until you can make further decisions.

As for making assumptions about an OP, we all have done that. Talking about them like they don't exist is in bad taste. It wouldn't take but a couple of minutes to look at someone's profile or BYC posting history to determine how much experience or proper care a person gives.
Saainya is one of the most caring and passionate people I have met here on BYC.

No one is perfect. Accidents happen. While recovery doesn't sound promising from the description of injury, giving the OP support and constructive suggestions is a better course of action instead of tearing them down further when they are in distress.

I second that @Saaniya is a very caring and responsible person. She has a lot of knowledge about chickens and loves her pet roosters. She helps people here on the emergency forum often.

I hope that you can get your rescue cockerel to survive Saaniya. If you could use a mushy chicken feed or mixture that you give your roosters, that might be best. He might have swallowed something similar that the other chickswallowed.

Hey there so I need help ..it's rough tough time and long story I rescued two baby chicks on Dec 13 ,2020 and it's all fine they were growing active and playing . In January 22 one chick accidentally died by swallowing something we don't know .

His brother is all alone since then , he is not growing , he is all quite and not wanting to play . He just want to sit and sleep . .

I gave him toys , pillows mirrors but none of these stuff working ..week ago he falls from bed and injured his legs since then he's very weak and feels sad all the time ..

I am giving him mashed eggs , Bcomplex , Amino Acids , vitamin E to help him grow but he's not growing not even feathers coming as yet ..could be a runt ..

I earlier raised a runt and all things worked ..but I feel too bad right now seeing my lonely chick not growing he's so sweet 😭
Oh so sorry about your loss...the one you are holding is SPOT ON ADORABLE! just give it lots of hugs and cuddles...spoil it rotten... more than likely it's missing its friend...chickens are sensitive to loss... there are some really nice bird videos on youtube maybe that will cheer her up...

I have 2 hens...a Cornish Cross and a Black Lace Wyandotte....mine are house pets and so much fun their names are BLACKIE & BLONDIE...i am very disheartened about BLONDIE because her life expectancy is said to be 12 weeks...she much older than that and a good layer... started at 5mos...

Don't dispair keep doing what you do...she looks fine give her lots of cuddles and research her breed... she may just start really growing in no time... she's greiving... keep her close... mine have beds next to me where they sleep... you might try that with her... just love her lotz! I could cuddle her through the screen... good luck.
