Does anyone here put Apple Cider Vinegar in their water? How much, and why? Has it helped
Sorry I haven't updated,,,, it's been very busy around here. Yes, Both twins hatched,,, but, both were underdeveloped, one more so than the other. Neither of them made it,,, the first lived for 3 days, the second, smaller one for a bit less. Neither had all the downy feathers a normal chick would have and neither ever really walked or stood on their own. Definitely alot of time, work, and hope. Talking to a couple of older gentlemen that I hang with at Green Dragon, not surprising at all, in fact neither had NEVER heard of a double yolk hatching. I did take pictures, just haven't gotten around to downloading into the pc yet.
The entire hatch didn't go well, but, I think I learned alot from it.
I have an adorable Cochin chick that hatched from that batch,, and she (very hopeful it's a girl), would keep one or both eyes closed when she woke up from her naps and couldn't find her way around, she would walk in little circles with her little wings extended for balance, so I called her dancer, thanks to these types of forums, I discovered she probably had a sinus infection, and after a few days of an antibotic,,,, she doing great. Needless to say we're both quite attached to eachother, and she's just adorable.
thanks for asking !
