I am hatching Seramas for the first time. We could hear "tweeting/peeping" all day long, finally one hatched. However she is on her back! She keeps trying to flip over, but so far no luck. I know we are not suppose to open incubator. Should I just leave her alone or help?

it takes them a little while to stand sometimes. I wouldn't worry much, if the chick absorbed the yolk properly it has enough nourishment to go a couple of days. if it never makes it to its feet, that happens sometimes too.

your first time hatching is so exciting, I remember the wait. I also remember making the error of opening the incubator to help a chick hatch. resist all urges, if the chick doesn't make it; you have done your best.
