    I love those initial pictures you got of them still in the incubator, they have a really wonderful, personal feel to them. And your hatch rate was great, you must be so excited!

    No it hasnt...At first it was fine...then about day 2 or 3 it wouldnt stand up....when we put it down and try to get it to stand it falls forward. In the box it just lays as if its sleeping all the time. I have looked at its legs and they look fine. Occasionally it will fall to its left side and the right leg will come out but I dont see any swelling, nothing. If he does move it is not like the other chicks, upright. I dont really think he is eating or drinking. so, we are just kinda watching...Im not sure what to do really. He kinda shakes/jerks also. Has a good peep though.
