I put some silkie eggs, my mix chick eggs, and some other mix chick eggs in the bator. Had 4 dozen eggs and after a week I only had to throw out 6 eggs. Everything was going perfect and then the weekend before last there ended up being 7 kids out here. We told the ones spending the night not to go into this one room that had the bator in it. We've had problems before of the other cousins that use to spend the night opening and closing the lid and bumping the temp. knob. I didn't think any of the other kids came upstairs since they don't normally without asking. I checked the temp. cause it felt hot and it was up to 105. I spent all night trying to adjust the temp. Well my husband's aunt came over that owns the bator adjusted it for me and it had been turned a full turn. I didn't think I'd have any hatch so I got a surprise. I have 16 chicks in the brooder and 4 in the bator. One of the silkies has a curled toe that I'm going to tape straight. Seen another with a crooked toe but walking real good. There were some chicks that had their pip hole started but around 12 hours after I seen the hole they either only cracked about a inch around or the membrane had dried and they couldn't get through it. I helped those which turned out fine. I figured there would of been some problems with the hatches due to the temp. being changed since I've had the problem before. There is one chick that the first time I seen the pip hole looked like it was choking on fluids. Then later after 14 hours I helped it. I leave the back half of the shell on for them to kick it off incase they might have some yolk or blood left. This chick kicked it off a couple hours later or maybe the other chicks run it off. It had the yolk gone but there is a large mass that looks like membrane (I hope it isn't intestines) stuck around where the yolk was. It is about the size of a grape and solid red. I thought it was extra blood but when looking at it has the shape of intestines with a membrane texture around it but solid looking inside. It has dried around the outside of the sack since I seen it moist but it is the same size unlike the rest that assorbed theirs. It stayed moist a long time so I know it just didn't dry up before the chick had time to assorb it The chick just keeps flopping around and barely walking. It also looks very thin. It doesn't look to good but has made it so far. I don't know if I should cull it or not. I'm thinking it was one of those chicks that should of died in the shell. The other ones didn't have any problems that I helped and a couple even kicked the shells off before I was done cracking thier circle around the shell. Another chick hatched out that is a black silkie that looks like it has both feet curled and is flopping around but it might of just been from just hatching unless it was in the egg to long and froze its feet. I'll have to wait on that one before knowing how good of health it is.
