    If the parents of the chicks have worms can they be born with them. These are hatched chicks from my flock. I have read one of the first signs is that the parents have them is an increase prehatch death and chick fragility. My hens all look good and there there has been no decrease in egg production. Trying to get a clue as to whats going on.. Thanks in advance.
