So why did you have a sad face, that is a good thing sn't it?
Very. Obvious. They are all curled on entrance to the world but straighten out as they dry and get up on their feet. What kind of incubator do you have? I bought the shelf liner at Walmart. The rubbery kind with the holes in it. You need to have it where they hatch out. Gives them traction. It is cheap and can be washed and reused. I have in the bottom of my brooder for a few days while they get good on their feet.
My 'bator is a Farm Innovations 4250 foam style. I know the stuff you're talking about. We use that in our camper to keep things from moving about so much when we travel. Also, cut to "washcloth" size it is great for opening pickle jars. I can cut out a square the size of the screen once I take out the turner. Great idea and thanks.
I'm pretty sure we have some around the house. If not, we can pick some up next time we go into town. Don't enter lockdown until next Monday.
