    I have a very young chick that was smashed under some others that were all snuggled together, he has his wings out and is breathing heavily. I tried to give him electrolytes but he started choking. He's under a light now, is there anything I can do? I think he may be dying. Thanks!!

    The wings out and panting can be an indications of being too hot.
    Separate him out and place him in a cooler area for a while to see if it helps.
    Then offer some water and see if he will drink.
    Do you have a picture of your brooder?
