    My brother decided to give my 3 week old female white crested black polish chick a "bath"/drown her.shes shaking her head wich i understand is normal.once my mother noticed she blow dried her and put her under the ecoglow .shes eating, drinking and pooping normal.shes half wat her self,she dosent run and jump or fly as much as the other chicks when i let out the chicks for a brief exersize.

    Shes now sleeping on my chest and i her a popping noise when she breathes in.
    I put suger in her water to protect her from gasping .she also keeps shifting to the left like its uncomfurtible.

    What else can i do for her?

    Do ypou think shes okay.

    Is she now completely dried off? She then needs to be in her warm brooder, just make sure she's eating and drinking. It sounds like she may have some water in her lungs, but you can't fix that. Good luck with her. Mary
