    One of my chicks hatched under one of the hens and it was being pecked by the hen so I had to take it off her an pop it in incubator. It’s looks fine apart from the legs that are in the shape of images off the net of chicks that can’t walk. Does she look like she might have a walking problem? She’s 2 hours old
