Someone help! They have wood shavings, water, and crumble food. It is a baby bantam about 1-3 weeks old. Breed and gender is unknown. What could be wrong?

It could have eaten a wood chip. I would give a small bit of coconut oil and massage the crop a bit (don't push up, you'll aspirate her). But I'm sure others can also chime in with better ideas.
Thanks, we don't have coconut oil, is there a possible substitute?

Pics?

Behavior? Normal? Active? Sluggish?

Vegetable oil but extra care must be taken to avoid aspiration. Do not give until after we have seen this chick please.

We're not sure how she normally acts because we bought her from the store only today to see if we could help her(or him, we're not sure). We only took her because we don't think she would survive the store with any condition
