    We had a little frizzle bantam chick hatch lastnight at 12pm it is now 9pm and the poor little thing still cant walk or stand up? Its kind of scooting its bum around in circles with its feet straight up near its head.. any ideas if this is normal or not we also had 3 others hatch yesterday but they are walking and standing fine
     

  2. that is not normal. can it move it's legs? do they hurt when you touch/gently move them?
