    We are hatching bobwhite quail. Have eggs that are dated the 4th, and others the 7th. Obviously, the 4th are getting a little far gone, but crazy enough, we had one hatch today that is doing great. Problem is, one of the 7th eggs hatched yesterday. Chick isn't doing very well. Can't stand up for very long and ends up on its side kicking his legs. Usually just lays around. I'm guessing it's not going to survive, but didn't know if there's any way to help it. I've occasionally made sure it's getting water.
