Flipped Over: What To Do When Your Baby Chick Is Stuck On Its Back

Howdy, folks! Bob White here, your friendly neighborhood quail farmer. Today, we're going to talk about a problem that can happen with baby chicks - when they get stuck on their backs. It's a bit like a turtle flipped on its shell, and it's just as distressing for the little chick.

Now, you might be wondering why a baby chick would end up in such a predicament. Well, there are a few reasons. Sometimes, it's because the chick is lethargic, or it might be having leg problems.

But don't worry, there are ways to help your chick. The first thing you need to do is gently flip the chick back onto its feet. Be careful not to hurt the little one. If the chick keeps flipping on its back, it might be a sign of a more serious problem.

If your chick is not moving much, but still breathing, it's time to take action. You might need to figure out how to save a baby chick from dying.

One thing you can do is check for vent problems. A blocked vent can cause a chick to become lethargic and end up on its back.
