    My very first egg hatched yesterday. After fully dry, I placed her in the brooder. Is it normal for day old not to be up walking around? Other than really big feet, she appears normal. Please advise. Thank you.

    i don't really know what to tell you. your chick isn't moving at all?! my baby chicks usually sleep a lot the first couple of hours or days but they still move around every now and then...

    Once I added two other chicks to the brooder, my first chick was up and walking around. Guess she was just lonely.

    I'm glad to hear she's up and about! Good luck with your hatching!
