Hi, Im new to hatching and my children took a very big interest. The farm gave me a 6 of one kind of egg and as she was one short she gave me a different larger egg. All the chicks from the smaller eggs hatched fine ( well one didnt, stayed a yolk ). Then the bigger egg hatched and its been terrible since. Basically he pipped from the wrong end and hatching took days. He got out and hadnt quite absorbed all the yolk. He also has spraddled legs and curled toes. Ive taped his legs together exactly as described in the forum and he is also wearing the tape shoes. The belly button area has all vanished inside now and he just has a little dried blob like a baby does. Im obviously worried about infection but I dont know what I can do about that. My main concern is since Ive taped him he wont move. He sits on his hocks and refuses to move. Where before he did move just badly. Am I doing more harm than good? He is such a little fighter he chirps and stands his ground if any other chick tries to bother him, the vet said cull him but my kids are so attached Ive got to try and save him. I taped his splayed legs on Saturday and his toes last night. Oh and his tummy does look a little swollen :-( Any suggestions please ???
