    I have not had successfull hatching season. However noticed one pipped yesterday (thought they were all dead) left it however this morning there was no change. Peeled back little chip and realized that poor chick was like freeze dried in the membrane I did warm damp paper towel left alone still no change she couldn't move so I assisted the hatch she is out breathing yoke was completely absorbed and already pooped. She is not standing or trying too
    Do I just leave her be? Hope she makes it

    Have you lowered the temp in the incubator to 95 degrees and raised the humidity?

    My chicks I hatched flopped around the bator for a while until they figured out what legs were and how to use them [​IMG] She may have had a rough start but if you have the humidity is up and so is the temp, just leave her be.

    I'm no expert by the way, I just feel there is not much you can do at this point.

    Again. That's what my chicks did, too. Took them about an hour or so I believe before they got the hang of it.
