3 chicks hatched today and we are all very excited... but, 1 of the chicks keeps his left leg behind him.. he can walk although he stumbles.. when he falls he cant get up.. ive been helping him up, but should i let him learn on his own? what happens if he cant get up?? will he survive?

This can be a chick just taking longer to gain his sea legs or it could be a sign something else isn't right- only time will tell. If he gets stuck like a beetle on his back, flip him over, but he may just get the hang of it.
