    I was recently given 2 chicks for free at TSC because one was trampled and the other was the last survivor of the group because all the others froze to death. The little pullet that was trampled has been having many problems she couldn't stand and wasn't eating or drinking. She started stargazing earlier today and that made me worry and I managed to get her to eat some smashed egg with milk and ive been giving her sugar water. After this she became much better and was standing on her own and making lots of noise but now she is completely unresponsive. She's laying for the most part on her side and isn't responding at all even when I pick her up. What can I do to help her?

    Yeah. She passed away, curled up with me and the other chick. Seems she just got to badly trampled for recovery but she went peacfully better then if she had been left at the store.
