    has anyone ever had a chick to hatch in the bator, dry off, then just fall over dead? This is what I found Sunday morning when I came home from work, 2 guineas had hatched during the night, (day 28) and both were dry, one was hopping about, the other was face down in on the floor of the bator, dead. I've never had one die that quickly, if they do die, its usually a day or 2 later. Strange. Just wondering....
