    I have a white Ameracauna Rooster and Two White Ameracauna Hens. I hatched my first chick from this trio this morning, but it does not appear to be able to stand. The other chicks hatching (Orphington, Black Australorp, etc) are having no trouble. THis is a really pretty little chick, almost a blue color. It hatched fine but is just flopping around in the incubator. I am still in lockdown, but does anyone have any suggestions?

    yep, some chicks just take a little longer to get their legs under them. I wouldn't fret about it just yet.
