    Greetings from Kansas, crymych chicks, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our flock! Sorry, however, to hear about your sick chick and hatching problems. Below are a couple links you might find useful. The first is dedicated to helping sick or injured poultry - post over there as the folks really know their stuff. The second is an incubating/hatching thread - maybe some of those folks can give you some pointers. Good luck to you!!

    well as long as she's eating and drinking and sleeping she should be fine just dont put her outside she will need extra care make sure she's not rolling in her own pooh and take her to see a poultry vet
