I have a newly hatched silkie chick that was not being taken care of by its mom. Chick is recently born and was found in front of mom rather than under her. It did not appear to be doing well so I've brought it inside under heat lamp. It's still not dried off and fluffed up but it moves a little and it just cheeped. It has not stood up yet. What else can I do?

I put chick back with momma. So far so good.

usually just after hatching they are tired and need warmth and lots of rest. Hopefully all is well now, good luck!
