    I have a chick here that hatched out either last night or this morning. It's belly is really poochy and it can't seem to get stand up on it's legs. it just sorta waddles on it's belly.

    he got flipped over on his back a minute ago and couldn't get back up. He's chirping a lot, but he seems very tired.
