    My broody just hatched a baby today. However it hardly cheeps and lays down. I put her by food but she just lays there. She does walk a few times but not much at all. She won't drink or eat

    The baby chicks doesn't NEED to eat anything for the first few days. If in two days, the chick still isn't, I'd start to worry...

    Feel her legs. She may have hurt it, or the hen may have sat on the chick too hard. Perhaps it's broken.
