    Went into my coop, found chick. What do I do? Was not prepared for this. Trying to give water w/ little bit of sugar for strength.

    Where are the rest of the eggs? Just put the baby in a box/brooder and provide water and crumbles. Dip it's little beak in the water and sprinkle the crumbles around it so it gets curious about them to peck. Then go look for the rest!

    If there is no parent around, i suggenst you take it inside and keep it warm and comfortable in a brooder. Use an eyedropper to get some sugar water into it. You can even try to give it electrolights for energy and vitamins. If there is a parent around, just leave it be, and nature will take care of things. However, if your worried about it, keep it inside and keep a close eye on it. try to get it to eat something. Make a mash using chick food and water. It might like that better than regular food.
