    I have a chick that hatched yesterday but it can't stand up. He just pushes himself around. In the past if I have chicks that hatch w problems they seem to get stronger and get better but this one is still the same (not weaker because I give him crushed food and water). Do you guys think he will make it and he's legs will get stronger so he can stand up?

    Some of these things can be vitamin issues, but they can also be from humidity. Give the little guy a chance, feed it well and go from there. Good luck!
