Dead Newly Hatched Poults

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a hen who has been sitting on eggs for almost a month now. Today I came home and checked to see two lumps of feathers that turned out to be dead poults. There are still some eggs, so I'm assuming they hatched today. I was wondering what I could do to keep these alive. This is assuming they're viable. Later tonight I'm going to move the hen and check the casualty count as well as candle all remaining eggs. Please help me to keep some alive.

I would pull them as they hatch and get them in a warm brooder. I had troubles getting my turkey hens to care for the poults properly. Now I raise all mine after my chickens hatch the eggs.
