Our baby chicks are about 4 and 3 days old now. One, the youngest one, had a very complicated birth. We had to help hatch him because he had pecked a hole in his egg but couldn't get out. As of right now, we think his hip is dislocated because he can't stand and when he sits...his leg spreads straight out. We also think he's blind because of how cloudy his eyes are. The other chicks with him sit on him but also run him over. We have witnessed once another chick bringing food over to him because he can not get it himself. I'm very worried and I'm wondering if the other chicks will try to keep him alive if they know he's suffering?
