I have a mama chicken who would laid 13 eggs and within the last couple days all of them have hatched. The pen we kept her in my Dad was supposed to make safe for the chicks by covering a hole that separates the top level from the bottom and take out the ladder however he did not do that before the chicks hatched and we have one that may have fallen. Chick may have been on bottom level all night and is now cold, we are heating it with heat lamp but trying to figure out if how to tell if it's okay. It seems to be having problems holding its head up and gasping for air. This chick is only 1 or 2 days old! Please let me know if you have any clues as to what I made do.
