    Our last egg hatched about 2 days ago and we got a chick that was bleeding as he hatched but he got out sorta in one piece!he has got a deformed toe that makes him limp as he walks,is smaller and skinnier then the rest,is missing some patches of down,poop looks different from the others,is pecked on constantly and though hatched around the same time as the others his down still looks wet and clingy........has this happened to anyone elses chicks?If it has do you think he will live?If he does will he be treated like an outcast and killed by the others as they mature?Thank you for your help!

    I would separate the chick, take pictures, and post in emergencies. I hope you get help and sorry your little chick is not doing well.
