    Could be something neurological, but without seeing it, it's hard to tell.

    How long ago did it hatch? There are some that are pretty wobbly for awhile after hatch.

    I don't know what to tell you other than to just wait and see what happens.....especially since you've got other eggs working on hatching.

    I'm with Katy...Leave the chick to rest in the bator and fluff up while the others are pipping and hatching...

    Then when you take the whole hatch out of the bator ..check the chick over again...if it could be crooked neck...try the search button...type in crooked neck or start a new post and someone thats experienced with that can help ...
