    I had a chick pip on sunday... and it didnt do anything till Monday is made a bigger hole and it was trying to make it bigger with the side of his beak I never saw any of the other chicks try to get out like that so I figured it was a stupid chick and helped it hatch out this morning at like 7:52 AM and he can't stand up I think his toes are curled one leg the toes are like backwards? IDK what to do do I make a splint for him or what?

    Missprissy is one of our mods, she has helped a lot of us with this issue including myself. She has great photos to show how to splint. Her chick took about two weeks to correct, mine took two days...the sooner you place the splints the faster it is to correct, you might want to PM her to get the info.
