On day 22 a single egg of 8 hatched. The chick hasn’t been able to extend its toes Or walk since it came out and hasn’t eaten or drunk on its own. I flattened the toes with some mini tape ‘shoes’ as I saw that worked for many people online. But he still can’t move what so ever just balance for a bit and then end up stuck on his back again. And I have not seen him substantially eat or drink, have dipped beak, tapped food, even made food into liquid and dropped on beak. I feel bad as the chick seems distressed and am not sure what to do but do feel it has a fighting chance.
any advise appreciated

Poor nugget you might need to give it a leg brace aswell as the shoes. I gave my little dude some electrolytes in his water too but I think you can give them sugar water?
