    I would have NO IDEA why malpositioning happens - heredity or incubation. However, I do think it is the right thing to do to tell any future human mom or dad that he was upside down in the shell, so they can make decisions based on that information. :)

    Let's not count our chickens (ducks?) before they hatch.

    Well again, I don't see it necessary to have to tell new owners about a backwards hatching. It really doesn't affect future breeding, but of course, that's just my opinion. I have never seen any proven facts on it.

    NOW back to our hatchings, Where is your humidity at?? What day is nine and Ten at??

    One of mine was under a hen, not in the incubator. In your cases it could very well be incubation issues.

    There's no proof either way, that is true. IMNSHO, telling new owners is the right thing to do, which she is going to do and what I would do.
