    I'm so sorry. I'm also holding an injured chick basically waiting for her to pass because I don't think she'll make it. It's so sad. Sorry for your loss.

    Is because I'm not feeding them chick food? This one has had a poopy butt for a while, I always have to clean it.
    It's dying, I think it beyond help [​IMG][​IMG]

    It stopped gasping, is that good? I can hardly tell its breathing, it chirps. The first chick gasped till its last breath.

    It's still alive. The first one only lived 30 min after I found it. I have been giving her sugar water and my dad bought chick food. Starting to think there is still a chance she will live.

    She can't hold her head up, she can kinda stand, hunched over.
