Hi
Newby here. Two chicks got shrink wrapped. Helped them out. Both alive but they were zipping for over 24 hours. Now one of them is v lethargic and other is v active but stuck on its back even if I help to flip it, it goes back.
What should I do?
Hatched 30/40 mins ago.

You might try putting the 'flipper' in a shot glass or similar small glass, line the bottom with paper towel and put it in the incubator or hatcher. Force administer Nutri-Drench every 2 hours or 'Sav-a-Chick. If it's going to 'make it', you'll know in a day or 2 at most. If it's still flipping over after 2 days, then I would consider culling.
