I was up early to get my son off to a field trip and decided to check bator and brooder, of course, instead of going back to bed. The two that had not fluffed up last night got removed from the bator and tagged with zip ties and put in brooder. All rest in brooder are doing well except the one with the crooked neck. I put Nutri Drench in their water but I'm thinking I'll need to treat it several times a day since it can't get around well on its own. I read about a Vitamin E and selenium protocol somewhere, is that what you guys would recommend?
In the bator 2 chicks hatched overnight, one from a CL egg (Marans roo) and the other from a brown egg, not sure if Marans or Wellie yet. Their was a Marans egg (purchased) that had zipped and stopped. I decided to help it and am glad I did! It seems like it got its head to the inside somehow and it got stuck. I was afraid it was tiring out so I'm glad I helped it when I did. I have a Wellie egg in the bator that I think got stuck after zipping and I don't see breathing on that one. So here's the one I assisted. [IMG]
