    That's what I'm doing right now. Dunking her in warm water and trying to help her out. I didn't know if there was anything else I could do

    That's what I'm trying with no luck so far. I've had some after hatch deaths in other chicks from these eggs, and it has pointed towards digestive issues. This is one of the chicks from the non Davis hens. She has no paste on the outside, and a large knot inside, like she's never gone

    Have you ever done a necropsy on any of these chicks to determine whether or not they have an 'incomplete' digestive tract?

    Awesome! That makes me excited for my broody. I want to see her taking care of the chicks. Can I slip a few of my recent hatch into her brood once they hatch?

    For some reason I thought you were doing one more round of BCM. I'm sure you have enough to pick from though.

    Yes, I will leave them another day either way.

    Freaking adorable.

    Enema?

    I
    ve never done a necropsy, but I've lost 7 chicks from those hens that way. Walnut was the first to suggest that could be the problem. Only two of those chicks in this batch, and this is one of them.
    Now breathing raggedly. This may be a cull soon
