    I recently hatched 6 new baby chickens but one of them couldn't stand up after 12 hours or flop around, but lays there flat down and wobbles left to right. I don't think it's spraddle legs since it's not facing towards the sides, the legs are bent and wouldn't straightened out. The one that couldn't stand was the last to hatch and took 1 and half day longer than the others.
