I have 5 eggs in an incubator, 2 have hatched and one hatched overnight. The one that just hatched looks like it’s struggling to flip over from its back. Is there anything I should do or give it some time to do it on its own? The two other eggs have pipped.

Any updates? How's the chick? Have the others hatched?

Chick is still on its side, two other eggs have not hatched. I brought the incubator into the bathroom after running the hot shower, made sure it’s was good and steamy, opened it just enough to try and flip the chick. Chick fell right back and now I’m worried I’ve hurt the other two.

UPDATE: I took all 3 chicks out and put them in the brooder. I held the one having trouble upright in my hand for a while and now he is walking around. Still a little wobbly but much better.
