    How long has it been?

    I hatched 2 yesterday and they were very sleepy for a few hours, they would shift around and fall over and go back to sleep.

    After about 8 hours they seemed to maneuver themselves much more steadily.

    did you put paper towel under them if it is slippery it is hard for them. the one with sprawled legs will need theropy lol a short string to hold them at the correct spacing, i have done it a couple times now.
