    I have a baby chick that does not eat and sleeps all day. What can I do to help this baby chick to survive?

  2. 1. Separate him.
    2. Give him raw egg, and water. But remember, if he is weak, then you will have to dip his beak in, the tilt him back up so he can swallow.
    3. Let him sleep. Most important step. SLeep helps him recover.
    4. Feed and water again. Water is most important. He needs to be hydrated.
    5. Let sleep again.
    (6). If he dies, burry him, do not weep or be sad, he will be with Jesus.

    I did everything that I could to help to make the chick survive. The little chick passed away yesterday evening. :(
