This chick hatched yesterday and it's unable to stand, it just sits on its butt and hocks. It was hatched in an incubator so It wasn't crushed. I would like some help with this please.
This my first time trying to hatch chickens so I tried to have them hatched naturally with the parent but they kept adding eggs and there were to many so a lot of them are at different stages. I decided to get an incubator to take care of some of them, and currently there is one that is doing fine with the mom and a bunch didn't make it since they got crushed by the parent, only one has hatched from the incubator so far and it's the one with the leg problem. On another forum they said it could be splayed leg so I tried the band-aid method and I don't think its working.
