    This is the singleton my bantam just hatched. Bought 7 eggs online, only 1 hatched. Don't know breed, and usually can't sex until they crow or lay!! Tiny chick, light brown egg, 3 toes, no foot feathers. Ideas? Autopsied other 6 eggs (knew 2 had loose air cells). All were yellow inside, no blood, germ, or rings. Does that mean they were infertile, or did something else go wrong? [​IMG][​IMG]

    So you don't know what breed the eggs that you bought were, or you just lost track of which egg was which? If a breed wasn't specified at purchase, it may be a mixed breed. Can't even begin to guess at breed until it's feathered in, sorry.

    Hope it thrives - and we can see photos later on. You may want to ask your questions on a incubation/hatching sight to know what went wrong.
