    Can someone tell me what happened to this chick? It looks deformed to me. Really big feet. Small wings. And it looks like it's bowels ruptured. It's belly is really extended. [​IMG]

    it's still alive. Laying in its belly now like it's just resting.

    It suprised me when I did my first hatch. They actually have a belly button and umbilical cord. If you didn't help it out, it should be okay. Your first hatching is always scary. Remember, birds have been hatching out without human intervention long before we were interested in not eating a raw egg.
