    I woke up this morning to go check on my hatch from the 7th. I got all excited when I saw they were out from underneath the broody until I only counted two of the four. after a little investigating I found out that the two oldest had died in the nest. on top of that I found out that one of the two surviving chicks had a bad leg and couldn't walk. That one had to be culled. And now I think the remaining chick is a rooster. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I feel for you, that does suck. How frustrating.
