    Calm down, let the little guy get his guts in order and fluff up. Babies don't always look cute when they are just born. Give him 24 hrs to do so.

    Yup, give him time. It's a lot of work being born. Give him time to uncurl (he's been in that little egg for 21 days, you know!) and get sme energy.

    Wouldn't you be tucked up in a ball if you went through all that work?

    Did you help him out at all?

    If not, he should be fine and is just recovering from being born. Just leave him alone and let him recover and get energy. The tummy/bum area may look swollen a bit due to the yolk sack being absorbed.

    He's got all new unused and untested nerves, twitches are common. Just let him rest, if he came out fast he's exhausted and needs lots of time to recover. Worry tomorrow. Just make sure he's warm and he'll rebound over time.
