    I have a chick that is the 6th one to hatch. Her egg got smooshed I think....but she's out now.....she hatched about 6-8 hiurs ago. She's dry and fluffy but her eyes have not opened and she's not making any effort to stand up. Her neck is very wobbly and it seems almost as if it's broken. She's peeping and cuddling with mama. Mama is keeping her warm. I don't know what to do :( if her neck was broken would she even be alive? Hopefully by morning she's better.
