I've never hatched chicks before. One of my hens went broody and a friend gave me 4 fertilized eggs for her to sit on. Today is day 20 and 2 of the eggs have hatched. I would say they hatched about 6-7 hours ago. One of the chicks has a leg splayed to the side and a foot completely upside down. I taped the legs about a inch apart, but the foot is still upside down.
Like I said, this is my first experience with this and I have no idea what I'm doing except what I've managed to find online over the last hour. I'm not sure if that's something that may be normal on day 1 or not. It's not curled toe, seems to partially be spraddle leg, and I have no idea how to tell if it's related to a tendon.
Please help me!!
