We incubated 21 Silkie Bantam mixes. We are on day 22, but I think the hatches are done. We had 11 of the eggs hatch, but 1 chick died yesterday several hours after hatching... Right after we moved it to the brooder. We seem to have problems with the chicks legs. It's not spayed legs, but 3 of the chicks have 1 leg that stays straight... But can be bent. The chick that passed yesterday wouldn't stay off its back. If you set it upright, it would fall backwards immediately. We have band/straw braces on the 1, and that one is doing great, and the other not so good... She freaks out if she has them on, and she falls over immediately because she's flipping about... She's much calmer without. It'll stay upright about 50% of the time... It falls over all the time and keeps one leg straight out, but alternates which leg is extended. We keep her/it in a coffee cup lined with paper towel at times, but don't keep her in there for 15 mins, out for 30, etc. We are manually feeding and watering her. At times she'll waddle about the tote... Then we'll find her on her back... So she has her good and bad moments. She's going on 3 days old now (2.5), and I think she would be strong enough to get through this if she was going to. I really hope I'm missing something that'll help her. She's on medicated starter mixed with non medicated starter with electrolytes in their water. Anything else? Please help, we can't lose this little guy! The brooder is a huge tote lined with a puppy pad topped with 2 layers of paper towels. We have 3 white Silkies, and they all seem weaker than their darker counterparts... But then again, the one that died yesterday was a dark chick. I tried searching before posting, but was unsuccessful... Probably not searching the right terminology. My wife didn't want me bothering y'all, but she also cried a lot when we lost the one yesterday. Thanks a million in advance! If I forgot a detail or two, please ask away... As long as we can get to the bottom of this.
