    Hey guys I have 6 hatchlings... first one born at 6pm last night... The last at 6 am... All seem to be doing well but one... He cannot hold his head up... He is trying so hard for hours... He is still chirping and moving like crazy but no matter how hard he tries he can't lift his head... When he tries to stand he just ends up on his back... He is moving and twisting so much I am afraid he will snap his neck... I don't know what to do... Someone please help... I had 9 that made it to hatch and only 6 survived... Any advice?
