    She's still alive and sitting up some she's def weak feeling still when she sits up she wants to lean back and uses her wings for support i have a video but can't seem to get it to upload. She has had a bowl movement which is good the food, water and vitamins im giving her in the dropper seem to be helping.

    Tractor supply did that for us yesterday. When we lost one and thought we were about to lose her. She was fine when she got home for 24hr than was found laying on her side while the other chicks were stepping on her i separated her from the rest gave wet her food enough to come up I the dropper and have her her vitamins in her water through the dropper. Today she's sitting up and chirping tried getting her to eat on her own no luck so i guess she's still feeling weak

    Thanks me to.
    Just trying to figure out how she went from fine to practically dying she hates being in her cage by herself on her side especially when she can hear the other chicks. So she's wrapped up in my sweater close to my chest she seems to like that. Just can't keep doing that lol
