No fluff at all on the neck and back of the chicks head
I had some mixed breed eggs in the bator. I'm not really sure what cross breeds.
I think my bator temps were a little low so i'm not sure if it may have caused this.. I have had 4 chicks hatch bald..no fluff at all on the back of the head and the entire neck... I even had a bantam egg hatch this way.. well I assume its a bantam because the person i got eggs from had two hen and one roo bantam and the egg was small.
Why are they hatching with no fluff on the back of the head all the way down the neck? will they die soon?
I'm a little new to this also, but one of the brown eggs that hatched. The chick looks like it could be a EE chick. Do you think the daddy rooster could have been a EE and the hen a brown egg layer?
I had some problems with temps during incubation. Also The person I got the eggs from seemed to have had a mix of chickens that were all mutts.
When I picked up the eggs I did notice one of her birds were missing the neck feathers, I was just thinking it was being picked on or was molting IDK
