    I found a chick under my porch and I put it in a cage. Its limping and all it does is lay down. I'v had it for 2 days and it still acts wierd, it eats and drinks but it doesn't seem to be getting bettter?

    If you have or have had chicks, put it in a tub and make sure it has food and water. put a heat lamp on it but dont put on too hot if it does not get better over a couple of weeks take it in....treat it with extra care.. it will take more than 2 days for you to see change in health.....If you dont have expierence find a local person who does... i hoped i helped!
