I recently had eggs set for hatch and after 23 days gave up hope on the final eggs hatching. As I was removing the eggs, one of them appeared to have tried to hatch from the bottom and couldn't complete the hatch. Problem was...it was still alive inside the shell. It started peeping. I peeled the shell from it and it struggled. I don't know when it started hatching, I would assume 2 days before...but, here it is 24 hours later and it's still alive but cannot stand up. It looks like the legs are okay, but the feet are curled and unless I use my fingers to spread them out they stay that way. I pick it up about every hour to offer water and food. It takes the water, not so much the food. I've processed grown chickens, but babies??? I, like so many others, can't bring myself to do it. Reading many of the other posts, I know if this chick survives, it will never be part of the flock and I have a this thing about nursing animals in need. Please be kind when telling me that I should cull the baby! Is it possible it can indeed survive and grow?
