    I would give him a few days. You may have to dunk his head in water for him to drink. He should be okay with just water for a few days; remember he still has nutrients from the yolk. Can you put a multi-vitamin in his water, like Rooster Booster? Even if he is blind, you might be able to teach it where the food and water is. I'm not sure if you have the time to teach a disabled chick, but animals have an amazing capacity to learn and overcome diversity.
