    Hi everyone, im new to byc but i really need some advice! So we just hatched our first chicks about 24 hrs ago. Four of them total. Three are doing wonderful but one is not :(. He is our biggest and did great doing hatching, however after he hatched we had a freak accident. He fell in a crack of our home incubator and there was water there. I quickly got her face out of it, but she has not been acting rt. She is breathing very heavy and is very tired she does stand but no for long :( do u think maybe she got water in her lungs? Is there anything i can do for her? Please let mecknow! Thanks!!!

    Hows the chick doing, sounds like water in the lungs. Not much you can do, just wait and see how the chick makes out.
