    Well the celebration was short lived I am afraid. I'm quite sure the chick isn't going to make it. He is completely out of the shell, there wasn't any blood, and the yolk was completely absorbed, but he appears to be struggling. He is LOUD and peeping up a storm, but he has yet to try and stand up on his legs. He is stuck in what would be comparable to the human fetal position. He can move them and everything, he just isn't where I would expect him to be.

    Are Serama's slow getting going?

    YEAH! When I got up at 1030pm this evening to head off to work, the chick was standing up and running around the hatching tray! WOOOWHOOO!

    They are mighty different than the Silkies I am used to. This one threw me for a loop!
