    It's not the right link [​IMG] click on your movie and before it plays click on that link and paste it.

    I'll give it a swing anyways. I helped because I thought the membrane was too dry. I added drops of water and it was a disaster!! I created a "squishy chick" This is happens when too much moisture, either by water or too high of humidity, is absorbed by the chick. It's body becomes too heavy for it's little feetsies and they can't walk....

    The good news is ...if this is squishy chick syndrome, the chick will be as good as new in a day or two...when it dries out. [​IMG]

    good luck

    Spraddle leg. Do a search above for instructions on how to tape the legs so she can stand. It wil take her a bit to get used to it, but whe will get better.
