    We have a chick that hatched last night, I left it in the incubator to dry and when I checked on it this morning it was falling all over the place. It tips to one side when it stands and rolls onto its back as it falls. It can stand but in order for it to not fall, it puts its butt against something (incubator wall, eggs). Its feet and legs look fine so what could this be?
