    A little over a week old chick with the broody. Went out this morning and my little lady was covered in straw and barely moving. Brought her inside and she's not opened her eyes since. Her neck twists back and she just lays. I've held her neck up and she's drank some electrolyte water with vitamin E and also a tiny bit of yogurt.

    What else can I do to help??

    It was tough. I've lost older hens due t old age, and eggs haven't hatched, but this was my first chuck that has passed. I've got 65 in my flock, but it was still hard. Now I'm going to be even more of a "helicopter mom".
