There is danger when you try giving fluid to a chick that
weak. In the wild state a hen hatches her eggs and the
chicks stay under her for a day or two until they can walk.
The chicks do not have any water until their mother leads
them to a puddle or a stream. Or they peck a dew drop.
The eggyolk is inside the chick and will feed it for a
week while chick is learning to eat.
You can make a bed of towels and prop up head on folded
towel. If neck is badly twisted you can make a donut from
sponge and pull the head through the hole to hold neck
straight for a day or two but this is to be done only if
the situation demands it.
If you are still having a problem you can email a photo
or video clip to me
