I have a chick that hatched while still in the incubator. She wasn't due to be moved to the hatcher till tomorrow.She is a "flat" chick, she can't seem to get her feet under her, or to stand up, is she ever going to come out of this, or is she doomed to be culled?

She may just not have enoug development in the legs to support herself, especially if she is early. I'd leave her there for a day or so and see if she gains strength. You may have to end up applying some splay leg treatment and doing the pipe cleaner or cup tricks...

I hope your chick is able to pull through. Keep us posted.

Checked out your site. Great looking dogs and oh man those silkies are adorable.

Would I be able to put silkies in with the other big chicks I got for laying?
