Help guys!! My last lavendar orph hatched this am with a little assistance his shell was really hard and he was malpositioned I think. Anyway got him out Ok and the yolk is all absorbed but still attached. He's just not very active yet just kinda lays on his side.... Seems really weak. Do I just need to leave him be or what... He's been that way most of the day.. Never had one act this way. Thanks!!

It could be that it is weaker, and that's why it was unable to hatch on its own in the first place. I'd give it a little more time to see how it does. Sometimes it does take a while for them to be up and about after hatching.
