    I have chick tht just hatched this morning. I went to the store to pick up stuff for dinner and when i came back the chick wouldnt move. I touched him and when he didnt move i held him for a bit. While holding him he was moving his mouth opening his eyes and shaking his head...it just seems to me tht he cant move his body. What should i do??

    Sometimes there isn't really anything you can do. You could try getting some chick starter into him. He would need fluids. Do some research in these threads for using sugar water or electrolytes. Good luck.
