I had to do an assisted hatch on an Easter Egger chick just now. The poor dear had zipped about a third of the way round and had been pushing and pushing and struggling and crying since this time yesterday. The shell was cracked in such a weird way that he/she couldn't get free. Now that he/she is out I can see why. One leg, the right one, is totally folded under the chick's body and he/she can't move it or use it at all. I can't detect any swelling or obvious deformity and the other leg seems fine. He/she is very vocal and is pushing itself around the incubator floor in circles trying to stand and repeatedly tripping over the bum leg. What causes this? What can I do? Have any of you ever seen or heard of this before? I'll post a video if I can in a little while. Please help!
