    have a chick that I had to help hatch. It pipped from the wrong end. Everything went fine with the hatch. No bleeding and everything was absorbed. The problem is now that the chick seems off. I think maybe it's blind or has something else going on. It's off balance but does scamper around a little. It conctantly keeps it's eyes closed and cries. Also smells a little funny and seems to take shallower breaths than the other chicks. I've been giving it drops of honey water, red cell (for vitamins), and tylan 200 (just in case it has some infection or something). Any thoughts or suggestions?
