    I think something is up with my new Cream Legbars and their eggs. I put some under my silkie to hatch out and I had a few in my incubator. All quit about halfway or so through. Some air cells were wobbly. I blamed it on me incubating eggs right after deworming the chickens. They had worms and mites. So I put more under my showgirl a bit over a week ago. I checked them tonight and one was totally scrambled, a couple have wobbly air cells like a shipped egg. I cracked open one that my silkie had been sitting on for 3 weeks and this is what it looked like. I didn't crack open any others besides the scrambled one. The fertility is really good. It's 2 roosters and 3 hens (Yes, I know bad ratio, I'm getting rid of one rooster and adding some hens soon). But they just don't seem to make it far. What could cause this?

    I think I'm just going to call the NPIP people and get them tested. I'm getting freaked out googling things.
