Sorry this happened. If she's not breathing, she's gone. :hugs

Sorry I don’t know how to help. Like @DobieLover said, if she isn’t breathing then she probably isn’t living anymore 😢

I know this doesn’t help you now, but maybe try putting small rocks in the bottom of their water so it’s harder for them to drown.

I’m so sorry 😞 :hugs

Yes, rocks or marbles (easier to clean). Young chicks fall asleep everywhere and sometimes that can mean their water. Pretty much fill the dish with the marbles and add water to fill in the gaps. I'm sorry about your chick. :hugs

Welcome to BYC, sorry about your chick. :hugs When I find one like this I dry them off with a paper towel or towel, then wrap them in a towel that has been warmed in a drier or microwave and place them in an incubator set at 95 degrees f.
