    You need to provide heat, PROPER feed and clean water.

    Have you been keeping the temperature in the brooder between 90 - 100? Chicks have to have access to heat at all times or they become hypothermic.

    Do you have chick feed? That is what you should give it. Give him some water straight away if you haven't already, and maybe make him a little bit of scrambled egg, it will give him protein if you don't have chick feed. but DO NOT only feed him egg, he will not survive if you do.

    Hope he pulls through! Oh, if he is a single chick, a feather duster or stuffed animal will keep him company. :D
