This was our first attempt with hatching chicks. We bought one of those still air styrofoam incubators from a local feed store and we had a heck of a time regulating temperature and humidity throughout the hatch. We were able to keep the temperature between 98 and 100 most of the time, but there was a temp spike to 106 for at least a few hours on day 16. Yesterday was day 25 and I was planning to throw out the eggs, but we heard peeping in the morning. One lone chick hatched yesterday around 2 pm. When he came out he flopped around and wobbled, which I figured was normal, but now 24 hours later he is still just flopping around - not moving normally. On closer inspection, one leg is tucked up under him. He can move it but he doesn't like to extend it as far as the other leg. The joint is swollen and it looks like he scraped it on the wire floor in the stupid incubator and it's oozing slightly, so we moved him into the brooder. He is also constantly shaking/trembling even though he is under the heat lamp in the brooder. (Is he in pain?) Yesterday he was moving around the incubator, but today he can't get around the brooder on his own. He just kind of flops around and peeps his little head off. I've never had hatchlings before. How long does it take them to walk normally? At what point should we intervene and try a splint or chick chair? Do we need to cull the poor little guy? You can see how the chick is sitting upright, but his legs aren't lined up correctly. And here's another shot of how he sits himself up with his legs too far forward. He didn't seem to do this yesterday. There is a sore on his leg where the wire floor of the incubator rubbed it raw overnight. I would appreciate any suggestions! Thank you!
