We have had our first incubator hatch and are extremely new to this. The baby chick ( a blue Andalusian) was born yesterday at 12:00PM with spraddle leg. It took us until today to figure it out and we have made it a brace, which seems to be helping. However, it cannot eat or drink on its own and I do not want to move it to the brooder box. However, I hear it is bad to leave it in the incubator too long. None of the other eggs have hatched yet. What should I do?
Side note: Our first attempt at incubating eggs, the power went out for 3 days and we lost 12 baby chicks that were ready to hatch. This hatch, the power went out for the majority of 1 day and we are hopeful to see more hatching, but they are already a week late. My goal is to keep this baby healthy and alive, while learning how to do that. Any ideas are much appreciated!
