I have to ask because I've seen several pictures posted now of chicks hatching in automatic egg turners and am wondering why people are hatching their eggs like this. It concerns me as these are electronic devices first of all and even if turned off the chicks legs can get stuck in between the turner cups and injure them. The egg turners are also slippery, so if the chick manages to walk around on it ok, they are at increased risk of slipped tendons and spraddle leg. Chicks are not real agile when they first hatch and it is best to have them on a flat surface so they can learn to use their legs correctly. I'm curious why folks are using this method to hatch and if anyone has experienced trauma to their chicks because of it.
