If they were shipped eggs then sometimes problems accrue. Ive had it happen a few times and had to cull alot of my chicks
My chicks hatched out on the 20th day.... there were 6 to completely hatch but only 3 lived.. I don't understand.. but it seemed like two of them didn't absorb their yolk all the way? I'm not sure.. but one of the ones who is still alive won't walk normal.. and he/she was hatched breech and I had to help him/her because he/she puntured it's yolk sack while trying to emerge. The one pictured is "normal" and has a sibling looking identical.. these were eggs that I'd purchased but.. they all seemed to do well when I'd candled them.. any thoughts? Has anybody had this happen before...? This was my first hatch.. and out of the dozen eggs 7 were viable but many quit and some didn't make it out of the egg..
