    Wow that sounds awful. I wish I could help. Others will want to help but they will need more info such as what led up to this, other symptoms, age of chick, etc. Good luck..

    Doesn't sound too good...especially with a new chick. You should always expect to lose at least 1-2 chicks due to various issues. They're very fragile at this point.


    Good luck.
