My chick hatched about 12 hours ago and I just moved it out of the incubator. My chick can't really walk or stand and when it does it falls over. I don't know what's wrong with it. Help! :/

Make sure it knows where the food and water are. It won't absolutely need to eat or drink until the third day, but it should know where that stuff is. It may just need a bit of time to recover from hatching. Make sure it's warm enough - not too hot or cold and keep an eye on it.

Well, it's able to at least sit up some, so that's a good sign. Sometimes, they don't make it through the hatching process, though. However, just make sure she has what she needs and give her some time. Good luck!
