    I am a newbie...so what I suggest might not be right.
    But I would also try adding some sugar to the water in case it is just too malnurished and weak to eat or drink.
    If the sugar helps, I would expect to see changes withing 15 minutes.
    Let us know

    Give her electrolytes or sugar water by dropper every hour. smash the baby crumbles to powder. If she still wont eat it, add a little to the dropper of water tomorrow if she makes it through the night. Make sure she is warm and doesn't have pasty butt. I hope you can save her.....[​IMG] She may also need hobbles, splints, chicken chair, ect. but lets see if she makes it through tonight. Best wishes.....

    Sorry for your loss. However, this was something that many go through. Never, ever take a chick that has such a lack of energy. If they're not running away from your hand that first time then leave them in their brooder at the store. I always go after the ones with the most energy.
