Hi 😀 we found a baby chick most likely just hatched in our backyard and there was no momma around and we took it in and it seems to be very weak and not standing up straight and keeps tipping over and it’s eyes are closed and won’t open. Also won’t drink any water and feed. The legs are very weak and look injured possibly. His neck seems weak and keeps tilting down. Any advice to try and keep it alive is helpful.

Very cute! Try adding 1 teaspoon of honey, molasses or sugar to it's water. You'll have to force feed it to her so just get a dropper and slowly drip it into her mouth. It's a great energy booster but you'll have to switch her back to normal water soon then. Do you have it under a heat lamp? Also try feeding it raw egg yoke. That will help it to eat on it's own eventually.
