My parents have bantums and 3 chicks hatched yesterday. Someone thought 1 had died, and put it under their porch last night. My daughter saw it today...it was alive! We brought it home with us because the mom was keeping the other two warm and this one just wouldn't/couldn't stay close. We raised bought baby chicks a year ago, so aren't complete novices. My daughter is holding the chick with the heat lamp above it right now. It seems more content when she holds it. If we put it in the box it moves too much...I don't think it's a temp issue. We periodically offer it water. It's beak will touch the water and the chick raises its head straight up as if to swallow it. It's bottom looks almost featherless...not sure if that's an injury or not. We aren't sure if the dog had it in its mouth at one time, but there are no external signs of injury. Anything else we can/should do? do you think it really wants the water? It does calm down more after we give it water, but not sure if it's really choking instead of just calming down. It is chirping periodically. It seems to have a hard time walking around....almost jerking around and it seems to me like its trying to expend too much energy...but, like I said, is calmer in my daughter's hand. advice, please!
