I've just hatched out in an incubator a number of chicks and have a number that have either one or both legs that look "disjointed" or lame. Is this possibly caused due to a deficiency in the feed of the breeding pair? please help it is rather distressing that they can't walk and need to be culled.

I don’t really know but my guess would be either an incubation problem or genetic problem.

Can you post pics? They don't necessarily all need to be culled. I agree, probably an incubation or genetic problem.
