    Last night was day 22 so I guess he was a late hatcher, cant stand up just keeps flopping to right side, Legs look strieght but his neck is a little off, I searched on here for and answere but couldnt find a definant one. If it is crooked neck how do i fix? I want to keep this little guy.

    Can you post a picture? That might help. It could be that he's just weak from hatching. I've had them hatch and lay there like the dead for a few hours then suddenly they stand up and they're fine. You never know. How was your temp for hatch? did others hatch also, or was he the only one?

    Sometimes a late hatch may be oddly stressed/shaped due to severe crowding. I'd give him a day and see what he looks like tomorrow. If the neck is terrible, it may be osteo or it may be deficiency in vitamins-using vitamins in the water is a good start.

    After looking at pics myself it looks like maybe he may have a broken wing or something wrong with it? I'm lost maybe these pics will help someone help me. I feel bad for him he wants to get up so bad but just keeps flopping over.

    I have to feed him and give him water. He is still on his side. I can tell it is his neck but dont know how to fix it. He was my only roo with this hatch of sexlinks. He is getting V&E in his water also.

    Whats the status of this chick?

    How did it turn out?

    I have one that is doing the same thing... it was born this morning at 2 am and stands up, sways a little and then flops over.

    Never had chicks before and I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
