Ok - so I have been raising chickens for years and never had anything like this. I have talked to a lot of people today and none of them have had this either. So the eggs should have been hatching on Monday the 3rd, that would have been day 21. One started to hatch on Thursday at about 7 a.m. and it finally made it out of the egg on Friday at 7:30 a.m. After it was out of the egg it flopped around a bit and I figured it just needed to rest and dry off. So I checked on it at around noon and it was laying on its back when I tried to turn it over it really started to sqawk, but it couldn't stand up on its legs - no they don't flop out like splay leg. I called the feed store to see if someone there had ever had or heard of a problem like this and no one had. They suggested putting it in a cup or small bowl making it sit on its legs and keeping it in the right position. So I have done this but he still wants to throw his head back and go onto his back - is there any help for him?
