My chickens just hatched, one of them has a big belly,is that normal
I'm not sure, because I have never hatched chicks myself, but it does not sound normal to me. It could be that it is a bulge from absorbing the yolk before hatching. Does the chick seem to be acting normally?
It's probably the crop full from absorbing all the yolk.
The chicken is perfectly healthy and perky
I've had that before! Keep a eye on where the ombilical cord is. Make sure there is no infection. The one we had came out with a huge belly and we noticed the cord had gotten pulled out. But he grew to be a big healthy rooster. He kept the weird belly for about 2 months.
The belly should get a little smaller each day.
You can't even see it today,he looks normal
