    Hello! My day old babies have been laying down in a weird pose.. They hop back up after they're done, but I am just extra worried about them as they're my first hatch. Is this okay or does it mean something? Thanks! [​IMG]

    They do look dead sometimes but I wouldn't worry if they normally are up and about.

    be sure they have an area to get cooled off, he looks like he might be a bit too warm. And they lay funny when they are chicks. They should not be on paper towel they need something they can grip, I use nonslip shelf liner, works well and is washable. he is really cute.
