Exactly that. The baby chick seems to be limp and won’t walk. She lifts her neck back and seems to be trying to swallow or chirp but no sound is coming out. Maybe panting? Ideas?

Will she drink out of a small scoop? I would give her water and electrolytes, such as Poultry NutriDrench. If you are using a dropper, be very careful to only give a drop and then let her swallow. Has she just hatched. Is she warm?

Update, the chick unfortunately died. She was plenty warm and was about 4-5 days old
