Yesterday night a chick was struggling to come out for more than 12 hours so I decided to help it and I hurt its blood vessel.....with the amount of blood I saw i thought i will lose it immediately. But it somehow pulled through the night and is out of the egg. There is no yolk sac or umblical cord but the chick is very weak and can stand or open his eyes. I tried giving it sugar water(it is not taking it) and have separated it keeping it warm...what should I do now
Ps would like some insight on the legs and what to do next time. It is chirping

I had a similar chick in one of our recent hatches. He really didn't move for like two days. When he hatched there was a lot of blood and he just stayed there on the bottom of the nesting box under his mama. In order to try and save him though I used Neosporin (non-pain relief) on the wound and gave him some egg yolk every so often. I was thoroughly convinced he wasn't going to make it (his little head would just flop around, it was so sad). But one day after work I checked on him and he was nowhere to be found. Got very worried until I realized he had suddenly made a turn for the better and manage to stand up and get out of the nesting box and slip into another nesting box (that was inside of a crate) and under another mama. I was absolutely amazed.

I would try egg yolk and the Neosporin. That seemed to help our guy tremendously.

As far as the legs go, can you describe what they're like? I see the picture but in real life is the chick able to move them/flex at all?

The chick can move its legs and bend them a little but it cant open its eyes and is lying on its side.... Its head is curled like that in the egg.... How often should i give it sugar water... It is chirping in the center

I would just keep monitoring and giving sugar water, can I have a clearer pic of the legs? It looks like they haven’t “unfolded” so you may need to tape them flat. Overall I think he’s ok,
Except for the legs since I recently had a chick like this who had blood from there. He could walk but very weak. He survived and is doing well
