check and see if the toes are curled under, and look at the back of the "knees" for redness or soreness.

this is usually caused by dry hatch, or low temp in the incubator. sometimes it happens with late hatchlings too.

your chance of saving it is slim but possible. add some sugar to its water to help it get hydrated. some sav-a-chick may help too.

if it survives and is a hen, you shouldn't breed it, but it will be ok for egg laying.

best of luck,
brian
