    So when I got home from school today my great aunt randomly handed me a bird which she thinks is a finch and says she picked it up off the driveway because it was just lying there.... it kinda had its head off to one side... like just tilted and sways when it's sitting still.. it has eaten and drank but is showing no intrest in flying (I have it in a area in my chicken coop away from my hens. Mt grandma doesn't want it in the house ) What should I do? Do you think it will make it?

    We get a lot of sparrows like that in late fall and early winter. They are weak and wobbly. They eventually die. You can certainly try. It's possible it just needs food, but I personally would put it out of it's misery. Good luck with whatever you do.
