Hatching

I recently built an incubator for around $15 and after a failed hatch due to temperature issues I have now hatched out two chicks! They hatched yesterday and I had to help both of them because the inner membrane dried around them. Yesterday I realized that one of the chicks had curled feet so I used a band-aid to straighten them. Then I found its legs wanted to spread so I put a band-aid around them, I feel bad for doing that but I knew it would help. Both chicks are in the brooder right now but the chick who is having problems (George) isn't doing much more than sleeping and cheeping. I was wondering if there is something I can do to make him less lethargic. I should also add that he didn't absorb the whole yolk and that I have sugar water available but George isn't drinking. Thanks everybody!
