Ok, well make sure he/she stays warm, and they eat chick food that you can get at any farm store or ground up adult chicken food (they eat small pieces) medicated food or non medicated food it's your choice and they need to stay at about 80 to 90 degrees for the first week

Use paper towels for the first day or 2 then switch to pine shavings NEVER use cedar

Did this chick hatch under a hen? Or in an incubator?

Use what you have available until you are able to get the necessary supplies, if it just hatched, paper towels are fine, you'll be going through a lot of them. Heat and water are most important right now, but chick starter food will be important in the next day.

#1 priority is heat above all else, unless it is very warm where you live., Chicks can survive 3 days without food but without heat it won't last that long.

How'd you end up hatching 1 chick? Was it hatched by a hen? Incubator?
