    I woke up this morning to find one of my polish Top Hat chicks with a broken neck no idea how it happened but I'm guessing one of the older chicks my may have jumped on her, causing injury her eyes are closed and they rarely open but I believe she still has the capability and she chirps and tries to walk around but ends up just falling over and flopping around I have yet to see her eat or drink and I'm unsure if she'd be able to. currently am holding her and have her on a heating pad, im prepared to put her down if need be but I just want to know if there's any other options.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
