It could be some of the yolk has not been absorbed. Is it up and moving around? I had one hatch like this, I kept it in the bator, but in a small dish until all the yolk was gone. It seems ok today. This happened yesterday evening.

i was thinking maybe thats what it was.. its alittle sluggish but when you touch it or another chick bumps into it it will lift its head up and chirp alittle.. i sure hope it dont die on me. i have had a rough time with the incubator this last 2 hatches for some reason.

I have one that just hatched about 10 minutes ago like that. It is loud and tries to be active except for the egg shell still attached to the cord. It's just wait and see at this point. I've read a post here that it did take about 45 minutes for the cord to dry and break away. Hopefully it will take only that long. I have two other eggs pipping now in the same bator.
