My Quail chick piped at aprox. 10:00 a.m. Friday. It didn't progress at all after that. I kept humidity up, laid egg on damp paper towel, etc. Nothing....This morning I gently removed a bit of shell at the air space area, he or she was able to free itself by pushing a wing out. Yolk was completely absorbed, no blood, membrane was dried to the chick, I assisted a bit with removing it. Baby seems fine, nearly dry. I wrapped it in a soft cloth and have had it tucked in my shirt for aprox. 1 hour. Will there be any problems with spraddle leg?
