I have an Easter Egger that just hatched this morning about midnight. She pipped on day 23 and a few hours later she started to zip. She was doing so well and was about half to 3/4 done and then she stopped. There was no chirping and she stopped moving. I waited for about 5 hours and still no sound, no movement. She would occasionally kick like when they move and the egg opens a little at the zip point. After reading the extensive post on BYC regarding assisting with hatching, I decided that was the best thing. I only took a little shell off at one time, leaving the lining, which was drying out. Then I would wet the dry areas and put her back in the incubator to see if she would finish. I did that several times, and then on the last time I took another piece of shell off and she kicked and out she came. I was shocked by her size and couldn't believe she actually fit in that egg!!! So she did fine, was in the incubator drying off. She is now roughly 16 hours old. I went in to check on her to see if she was ready for the brooder and she was on her back. Now I know they do that sometimes after they hatch, but the reason she is doing it is because she keeps looking up, putting her head back and it ends up throwing her onto her back. She starts to stomp her feet trying to keep from falling back. Her feet seem awfully big, but not sure if that is a problem. I tried to her in the brooder with the others and she trys to stand up and walk but she ends up crawling on her feet and legs, if that makes sense. The the other chicks started picking on her. So she is back in the incubator. Also when she hatched everything was done as far as development and no bleeding or anything. I think she was just having a hard time getting out. This is just breaking my heart!!! I hope it's nothing serious. I am posting some pictures.
