    this is percy, i have put up a few threads asking for some help or advice, so i will quickly give details, percy was piped backwards and got well stuck in his shelll, after many hours i eventually helped him out, once i knew the yolk was all absorbed, i left him in the incubator to rest, he has yet to open both eyes fully, lift his head or stand, it has been 24 hours now, i got a bit of vit water with sugar into him, i gave him some mushy poridge, as it was all chicks first meal, he got a tiny bit down, but i have to hold him over the dish, and direct his head to it, he tries to peck at it, but fails, he has no head control, help, advise,

    Don't give up! I am going through the same thing and things are looking up for me.
    Keep giving him the vitamin water, a few sips, every hour or so.

    dont laugh, i noticed his tail is bent from the shell, and its tender when i touch it, so percy is getting duck physio, i am gently possitioning him in a normal ducky possition and massaging him, helping him by talking and helping himwalk like a ducky would
