    Too bad well atleast it is out of the gene pool and could cause more like that. And if you wanted a survival of the fittest then thats okay. If you just wanted chicks and more chickens for your flock then i am very sorry. Its always sad to hear someone lost a chick either way.

    Looks like the naval was infected. Were the eggs super clean when they went into the incubator? Did you wash your hands every time you touched the eggs?
    Even if you did all that, these things just happen sometimes. Be sure to disinfect your incubator very well before you use it again.
