I've got a chick that hatched this afternoon, i had to help it b/c it was stuck, waaaaay too big for it's egg! it's been drying now for about 11 hours, and its chest if nice and fluffy but it's back feathers have dried/hardened onto its back, and not gotten fluffy. will they fluff out on their own? should i try to give it a bath and get whatever has the feathers stuck down like that off? poor thing looks absolutely horrible!


also, it seems to have one wing that's too short...??? is this common? the wing had gotten 'glued' to the side when the feathers dried, i got it unstuck, but it still looks very small compared to the other...
