    we just hatched, 26 of 38 eggs, but the problem was, 2 of these chicks did not make it, due to their , not developing right. these chicks lookes as if instestines or some other organ hanging out their vent area, my question is what caused this? the other 24 chicks hatched fine and are normal. any advice thanks missy

    That can happen...the chick is quite ready to hatch, but does anyway and the yolk sack hasn't been completely absorbed yet...
