    I found a newly hatched chick with his intestines sticking out. He also has blood on him because it looks like he fell out of his mothers box shortly after hatching and got attacked by some of the other chickens. I have heard about this intestine thing happening before, but I don't know what to do for it. He is very weak, and I'm worried that he's not going to make it for very much longer. I've brought him into the house, and he is now under a heat lamp, but I'm still really worried. I'll post pictures in a second. Please answer soon!!! Thank you!!!

    I'm SO sorry about him.
    I feel terrible that I didn't discover this thread until now.
    My heart is broken
