I would have told her.
If she thinks the chick is dead what are you going to say if it recovers?
I think it would confuse her if she thinks things can com back from the dead and that death isn't final.
However in saying that the first thing I would have done is take the chicken to the vet instead of letting it suffer overnight.

I think I would Come clean and tell her it survived but it might still die and let her nurse it and care for it.. It's a good lesson in life. Don't be hard on yourself we all have these aaaah what now parenting moments.
Oh and you will always get the holier than thou people on here too...it makes them feel better about themselves...these are generally the crappiest parents!

This is a very old thread but here's the update....the chicken recovered (medication, stitches etc) and I told DD1 (who is 10 and knows very well that things CAN'T come back from the dead!) that it could still die at any point and it did 3 weeks later it finally succumbed to it's injuries even though they had healed very well there was damage done to the skull including fracture etc so it really had little chance of survival anyway.
For those of you who keep saying take it to the vet etc seriously would you spend $65 on a consultation fee then extra on x-rays, medication, stitches etc for a $5 chicken that was only ever intended to end up on the dining table anyway?
Sorry but I wouldn't especially not when I was due to have a baby, had birthdays coming up and christmas around the corner.....I wish I was made of money like some people

I think you did the right thing. We can't shelter them from everything. Let her learn and mourn.

I think maybe next time you could take it to the vet and ask them to kill it for you. Or force yourself to do it.
Poor thing would have suffered a lot for the last weeks of its life . It is honorable that you tried to keep it alive but if it was that badly injured it would have been kinder just to kill it.
