Dorkings hatch

Carol of LOWCOUNTRY MEDIA SOLUTIONS in South Carolina posted this charming video of her Colored Dorking chicks hatching, She adds these caveats about splay leg:

"As a newbie, I didn't know that the slick floor of my RCom incubator could be hazardous for new chicks. One of my chicks couldn't get a grip on the slick floor and over-extended his little legs WHILE I was watching. It almost broke my heart.
I found this website that is likely to expire sometime because the owner is sick and does not keep chickens anymore and it absolutely worked:
1 Week and 1 Chicken Prosthesis later, my little chick is kickin' and scratchin' with the rest :-)"
