    I had a bad hatch last night & this morning.
    only 1 chick survived (out of 13)

    bad thermometer and not enough humidity.

    the survivor has alot of dried slime on her. Do i give her a bath? Did the warm water paper towel thing just to get the really nasty parts off, but she is still not fluffing up.

    it's plenty warm out side now so it's not a big deal (the brooder is in my pool shed) she is plenty warm
    just very stuff feathers


    what should I do?
