I hatched some eggs for a friend of a friend of my mother's. She said they were "Indian Game" chickens. I helped 3 chicks hatch because they had pipped on the wrong end and were not making progress and I was afraid they would die. 2 Chicks had already died after pipping. I put 34 eggs into lockdown and 27 hatched! One of the chicks I hatched was very crippled. One foot was way up around his head and his neck was curved. He could not lift his head or stand- one wing was a little off and his neck and head seemed very fat and squishy like there was extra fluid. He just laid there wiggling his legs and that was it. He seemed very alert with bright little eyes, so I told may husband I had to try to help- I couldn't just kill him. We pulled his leg down and bandaged it to the other leg. I put him back into the incubator. This morning he was almost upright and I took him out and held his feet down with my finger while he wobbled around getting his balance. Gave him some water and put him back. Checked a few hours later and he was standing! I've been helping this little chick all day and am very happy to announce he is hobbling around with some banty chicks I "had" to get while buying feed last week. I'm not giving this little chick to that lady- I hatched her eggs as a favor so he's mine! Meet Gimpy!! Anyone know what breed he is? This is what my little fellow looked like one day 1 Here he is today!
