    Sorry for the massive multi-quote!
    I'm sorry about your babies. That's terrible to loose them all. 2 eggs started! But I think they already quit. I saw some veining start yesterday. The problem with totally detached air cells is that the chalaza is usually broken and when the embryo starts it can't attached itself to anything. The veins now look like a condensed little rectangle. I've never even had totally detached air cells even start. So this was a first for me. But the problem I find with not turning adequately is that the CAM will not develop properly and then they will be late quitters. Sometimes the damage done by shipping just can't be reversed.
    That is scary! Glad she made it! I had a chick pip into membranes once and luckily the blood clotted. After she got out (on her own) there was a big blood clot I the egg.

    Love the pictures!! They are great!
    Good pics! I need to start taking some pics when I assist! I love all your photos. They are very helpful.
    I have studied these charts and I can never figure out what positions my malpositions are in. All I know is I've never lost one! And I usually have 1 or 2 in every batch and 60% of the time they have zipped on their own, fortunately.
    At least you were able to figure out where the beak was! I read this article on condor eggs and some are very valuable. So I was reading that there is this machine that can pick up exactly where the beak is located inside the egg on malpositions through wave lengths. Once they locate the beak, they drill a safety hole into the egg and do a full assist. I just found that so interesting.
    I'm sorry but it does look like it quit. The veins should still be as prominent as they were when you saw them last week. Looks like they are receding.
    I hope someone else chimes in but call ducks can have trouble pipping because of their short beaks. I would make a tiny safety hole in the ones that have been pipped so long. Maybe these guys can [email protected]@Lacrystol

    If they are peeping/quacking/cheeping they've internally pipped. The external pip can take place anywhere.

    awe THANK YOU, you should see what i have in my house, OMG, it's a Mille Cochin, She's Spoiled Rotten, refuses to be a hen. Yes, she goes outside and huddles in a corner, doesn't matter if she's with other chickens or just by herself, She won't eat or drink just hides in a corner. So I brought her in, When she's in SHE's ALL over the place. LOL, in the Guinea pig cage, hopping all over the room. She is REALLY something else..

    I would place it in a separate bator and JACK that humidity up to around 80%, I doubt it if you can save it because it's sticky really bad, But Perhaps, putting some holes, little tiny holes where the yellow gooy stuff is you can get some of it to drain out. Raising the humidity you may be able to get enough moisture inside to basically Wash that stuff out.. You could even go higher like 90%, but it would have to be by itself, i would not put your good eggs in with it at that high of humidity..

    It's really tough to save a sticky baby..

    OH MISSY KATHY, I NEED YOU, @casportpony

    So I had a baby chick externally pipped last night, he was definitely malpositioned, broke threw the side of his shell closer to the smaller end. Well once I helped him out, first thing Both legs have curled toes. REALLY BAD.

    It looks as if the chick is MAKING a Fist, So we made him boots last night, I checked on him today and STILL Toes are curled something Horribly. He can't walk and can't even balance himself on his feet with the boots. IN FACT, with the boots on, He pulls them in and tries to stand as if he's on his Tippy toes.

    I'm not even confident this will correct itself. He's getting LOTS of Vitamins right now, but I'm not having a lot of hope here. Is there something more I can do or give him?
