Hi, Hope you are all getting ready for a great Christmas, I have some baby chicks that hatched yesterday and one of them pipped but after 24 hrs we helped it. It was still alive but I noticed that its egg tooth was broken off so that the lower beak was longer than the top - may explain why it didn't get out? Also it is not doing very well, keeps curling up in a ball and can't stand up but it has been trying to for about 4 hours so I have cuddled it to let it be upright in my hand and not let its head curl down to its belly.
Any ideas on what I should do? I am keeping it in the incubator for a bit longer as it only hatched out 5 hours ago.
