    Clean with a mild disinfectant. Keep its environment as clean as possible. I do not know of anything else that can be done, but hope for the best. I had a chick hatch yesterday-so weak it could now walk at all; just laid there. I was sure it would be dead by morning. This morning it was hardly recognizable- running, eating, and drinking with the other chicks. Good luck.

    Keep the environment as sterile as you can until the damage is scabbed or healed.
