    I have lost all hope in my eggs,but I am going to leave them in until thursday and then do an eggtopsy. I really thought this hatch was going to go well. Packing was perfect, not one cracked egg, air sacs were even good for shipped eggs. I have had not trouble with humidity or temp. They have stayed exactly were I wasnted them to the whole incubation. I only threw out 2. Some I thought were scrambled actually developed. So I dont know what the deal is. But the chicks I bought make up for it lol. But these were the RCBLs I have been wanting, I guess I will just have to buy some more and try again.

    Update on my russian Orloff. I was looking her over more. I was only focusing on her legs before, but I looked at her one foot and two of her toes are out of place. I'm not sure what the poor chickens did, but she had got her one leg and foot all screwed up. While I am not happy I found another thing wrong with her, it makes me even more confident that she has an injury and not a disease. She had the same signs as my SF, but I am one of those people that like to be 110% sure. I am going to make some calls tomorrow.

    CR 142 in Goshen, Martin's Chicken Butchery I have the phone number in case its not the same place.

    Thanks so much for the info, going to save it!
    Sorry to hear about the foot now. How high is their roost? Is it too high for the two chickens that had tendon problems? Slippery floor on landing? Just a couple of thoughts. Hope she does better!

    thank you for telling me about the place, but 2 hours is too far away. I did find 2 other butchers that are local. Hopefully out of 3 i can find one.

    the SF i am talking about passed away a few months ago. I eventually figured out that she hit it on a medal piece on the doir ( in a dufferent pen). there were also no roosts in the pen she wad in at the time. The RO was in a pen that had 3-4 foot of the ground roost. But she roosted on an old hay rack i have yet to take out. none of the others that roost on the hay rack have had an issue. And gloor isnt slippery it has bedding. So o have no idea how ir shar she did bug she managed to mess it up badly.
