This chick was stuck, when it started to unzip it got a toe out of the shell and could not progress..I left hubby a note NOT to help it, but he did, it was as ready as it would ever be to come out, but weak from nearly a day or trying to get out. I took all the other chicks out of the incubator and left it in overnight hoping it would perk up, I even gave it some sugar water last night and this morning. It takes the water then kinda heaves, I think some is staying in though. It cannot stand, hangs it's wings at it's side and keeps its toes curled. Can this chick be saved?
