    One of my 6 week old chicks found this morning with a curled up foot (broken?), and doing the labored breathing, (gasp every 3-5 seconds). She's been laying down too. Any hope? Should I try to save her?

    Thanks for everyone's help. I splinted her foot, put her in a cage in the pen. She's eating and drinking.
