    KaleyasChick Just Hatched

    Super new to this page and I'm not sure how to navigate it. But I'm desperate, so hopefully someone will see this and help identify what's going on.
    I had about 3 dozen shipped eggs incubating, 13 hatched yesterday. Most pipped and got cemented in by goopy stuff and I had to help.
    One chick has passed already, 3 are super weak and floppy, one has deformed legs, and another little guy has me stumped. At first I thought he was a goner due to unabsorbed yolk, but when I googled it he looks nothing like the chicks with unabsorbed yolks.
    Its very strong. You'd never know it had any thing wrong with it. He's running around and chirping like all the other healthy chicks.
    Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my little Chick??
