Baby with kinked tail

This baby came out with a tail kink. The rest of the clutch is perfectly healthy. I noticed it after cutting the egg open. It seems active and the kink is after the vent. It crawled out about 4 hours ago. What would the quality of life be for an animal in this condition? Will it have balance issues? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Likely very good as long as there are no internal issues that you can’t see. As long as it eats and dedicates fine. It is only pet quality


Thank you so much for the response! That’s what I was thinking from all the reading I’ve done. If it succeeds to thrive, it will be given to a friend who doesn’t breed.
