I didn't think it possible, but I must have the best beginners luck there is. Anyways, I hatch 1 quail and 1 chicken. I had to help each, as they were both 2 days over and had pecked a whole 2 days prier. What are the odds that these chicks survived when they are my first eggs to try and incubate, that they were left out of the incubator for 12 plus hours(dang kids) and found ice cold, and then end up needed to be helped out of their shells. So now they have buddied up and doing well. But I just had a freak out moment. I have taken them out of the hatcher and placed them in a class tank with a heat lamp over it. Right away they start going to sleep on their backs with their legs sticking out. I kept thinking it was too hot, but when I made a noise they would perk up and seem fine. After doing some searches, I found many that said their chicks do this. So tell me, is this normal? When I move them to the other side, where the heat lamp is not, they go back to the heat lamp and sleep again, stretching their legs out.
