Crossbeaks can learn to survive if you give them some help learning to eat. but without eyes to help it .. I don't think it's chances are very good, at least not in a flock.

Never calculate upon juvenile poultry until the necessary process of incubation has thoroughly materialized.

:hitI think it'd be easier to just let it go now vs try and extra care with lots of extra time then more extra care and ending in a loss anyway. No eyes and cross beak isn't a good start. Sorry about the bad chick. Glad the others are doing well even if late.

Howdy to all. Dark Cornish LF,  Cornish bantams, a few guineas and whatever else the coons didn't eat. Plus my quarter horses and Zebu. Have a DELIGHTFUL day.

       Every day above ground is a good day. Some people didn't get that privilege this morning.

I don't have the heart to kill him.


As painful as it is for you, I think the most human thing to do is to kill that poor chick.  It is sad, but the poor thing will probably die a slow death otherwise. It is our responsibility to do the right thing when we hatch chicks.    Kern

Why would a chick just fall over dead? I was just outside by the brooder pen. It just has a hen and the chicks she hatched out 8 days ago. She sounded a little freaked when I turned around their was a chick completely lifeless. She hovered around it and tried to get it up but it was gone. I don't know if she stepped on it just right and broke it's neck or what happened.

You might need to give a general area you live in---then maybe someone close can loan you one??? This Board goes all over the World------where you live??

Give more of a thought about making one as they ban be expensive but you can have more fun with one you make and Styrofoam and a light bulb oh a temp indicator and boom you got an incubator ...

 

Keep it simple sweetie or Kiss :caf

 

 

 

Go to the BYC learning center and look up incubators :thumbsup  Enjoy your time here and I do hope to read more of your questions :yesss:
