    Is it normal for a 3 hour chick not not be up and about? This is the chick that came out if the egg that I accidentaly droped. He looks fine but is still not getting around well. It still stays under moms. But when moms were digging ground all chicks moved out of the way except the newest one. It just hollered and got pushed around by moms. Do you think that it will make it or did I cause something to it when the egg droped? Please help. Shound I take it away from the rest or let nature take its course.

    Give it time. If nature is to take it's course that would mean leave it be. I'd only remove it if it actually dies.
