I hope this is the right spot to ask this My first hatch ever and i'm freaking out! My two little baby quail hatched last night about 8pm. Both look healthy, are peeping like mad and wriggling for all they are worth. One of the babies, the first to hatch, is all fluffy now while the other is still not completely dry, it looks like some the goo has hardened on her and wont let he fluff up. I originally had 3 eggs, but one hatched and died while doing so, it had not enveloped all of it's yoke. The first to hatch, the fluffy one, is wiggling around in the bator. He's been in there overnight and all of today (at time of posting this, it will have been 24h since he hatched). his legs are strong as when I pick him up and craddle in my hand, he pushes against the cup. I've splinted his legs for splay leg, but I'm not sure this is what it is. He wiggles around until his feet are sticking perfectly straight at the bottom and his neck is turned so the back of his head touches his back. It looks like the mother of all stretches. when I cup him in my hand, he wiggles until he's laying on his side in his position. He's been on his back and stomach before and always maddly kicks with both feet until he's in that same position. He seemed to push himself out of the egg on his own just fine. The other unfeathered chick is peeping lots as well, but is much smaller (maybe just the difference of fluff?). She was doing the same thing, but in reading a number of posts here on BYC I plunked her in a (clean) shot glass for about a half hour. She seemed to figure her legs out and is now laying on her stomach, legs underneath her and lays here, until she wiggles around. Is it normal for quail chicks to be doing this at a day old... is it birth defects and/if it is, is there anything that can be done with them. I've with held food and water for the last 24 hours to see if they will get themselves figured out but it doesn't seem like they have. little unfuzzy quail seems about the closest to this, but since they dont have the power to move themselves around too well, I dont want to stick them in with water. Any help would be much appreciated!!
