    Is he still alive? Some chick's simply did not develop completely before hatching and loss happens. The next time you have a weak chick try some "save a chick" you can find it in your feed store. An egg yolk slurry helps too. Hardboiled yoke, salt, honey and water mashed up and feed with a dropper.
