    There was a hardened mass of poop inside the cavity, just like pasty butt, but inside. Food maybe not totally digested. Like either dumped directly into the body, or something ruptured and then dumped. It would have never survived, so that was a merciful cull

    Any chance the medium sized combs are pullets? If not I have a grip of cockerels in this batch.

    It happens. This hatch has taught me to never incubate another egg from those hens

    Sorry to hear that. I'm glad you found the source instead of thinking that all BCM are hard to hatch and keep alive. And thank you for sharing.

    Hard to tell on the phone, but they do look pretty boyish. How are the tail feathers in relation to the combs? On mine, the girls tail feathers grow out much more quickly. The boys still have stubby butts at 8 weeks
