    My mom decided that the egg was ready to hatch and broke it open. The chick was covered in blood and so far has survived 2 days. She is very talkative but refuses to drink on her own and eat on her own. She isn't walking either. She tries to walk but I think she has splayed legs. I put a little vetwrap cast on her legs and gave her a nice surface to walk on but she won't even stand. She leans to one side when she lays down and keeps one wing up. WHAT DO I DO???? :(
