Well my hatch isnt going very well after all.
I took 4 out of the bator yesterday 2 of which are doing fine. The silkie seems to have severe splayed leg and one Delaware cant stand well either.
I have 4 still in the bator 2 dels and 2 pitas that I had to help out. They are all sticky chicks and one of the dels does not look good and the other doesnt seem to be able to stand
None of them have fluffed fully yet I think because the inner membrane so heavily coated their down. I gave the 2 Pitas a bath and got some more membrane off them. they seem to be able to stand fairly well once the get active.
Any suggestions on helping the sticky chicks
I was periodically finding them glued to the bator floor on their backs or sides. So I added a warm wet cloth to the place them on last night and it seemed to help a bit. Gave the pitas a bath this morning and Im thinking of making water bottle beds for them and leaving them in the incubator a bit longer.
