Many people fret over the poor little babies - hatching is very eggs-hausting business, and sometimes the little chicks are just plain old wrecked after a hard days hatch! So if you notice your baby chickens slumped over and panting, and just looking a little listless, don’t panic - they’re probably just wrecked from the hard hatching process. They’ll also be looking pretty damp, and you might be tempted to try and dry them. Don’t worry about it - they’ll fluff up on their own within a few hours. It’s important that the baby chicks are not moved from their mother or the incubator until they have fully fluffed up, otherwise they might catch a chill!
