    I don't really know the correct answer for that. But I do know I had a chicken externally pip on the wrong side just a couple days ago. It came out perfectly healthy, and I have not noticed anything at all wrong with it. I hope you have the same results.

    One of them just hatched but im worried. Its feet aren't spread out and it cant bring its head up. The duckling seems pretty weak overall but i dont want to give up on it, any ideas?

    :hugs Some of them take a little longer than others to get their feet under them.
