I ordered some blue andalusians from mypetchicken and one of them is throwing up and doesn't move when a chick steps on or kicks him. Help! Please.

Take the chick out and examine it. Feel the crop. Is it hard like a rock or soft like the other chicks.

The little fellow may have gotten impacted crop. If the crop feels rock hard, squirt some olive oil down its beak and massage the crop until the rock breaks up and disappears.

Also, check the vent for buildup and blockage. Clean gently with warm water.

Hope something works and you don't lose it.
