    My day old chick has a broken wing, I think. It can't stand up without rolling over to one side. The wing doesn't splayout like the other one. What can I do?

    Have you tried extending the wing and feeling for any breaks? You will have to support this chick by helping it drink and eat...dehydration from not being able to get to the water will kill your chick faster than what is ailing it.
