    Okay, I KNOW they are at first. My mixed chick from last week has his "sea legs" and is extremely heathy, balanced.Though hes a MOOSE. My Americauna chick is VERY wobby, I have twice had to turn him over when he rolled onto his back. I dont mind, but is this normal? I had to do this with my banty chick as well.

    He hatched in the early morning hours, between 4 and 5 am.

    Give them at least 24 hours to get on their feet.
