I have incubated an egg and ti had a hard time hatching. I followed all the directions I read and now I have a strong chick but having a hard time holding her head up. It's been about 6 hours since she was freed from shell. and about 2 hours since I got the last of it off of her back.
I tried giving her some water/gatorade in an eye dropper but she chirped loudly and shook it off.
She is one pathetic looking chick. Her feathers look like they dried to her skin from dried membrane. but she is strong and bobbling around incubator
