    you might try separating him, so he is not trampled by the others. alot of times one or 2 are weaker, and travel is tough on them. maybe dip his beak in the water, but sometimes you lose a few. not your fault. make sure he is warm, the others arent crowding him away from the light. separate light is the best.
