Can anyone point me to a link or thread with info on malpositioned chicks?
Here you go:
Are you having hatch troubles? Malpositions are a pain. I don't know why, but no matter what I do, I still get the odd one.
Thanks! I never noticed this with ducklings or chicken chicks, but perhaps that because I didn't pay attention to them like I do with the peafowl eggs. I have some pictures which I'll post, and if you could comment on them I reall would appreciate it!
No problem. The first time I hatched ducklings I had 3 malpositions and I did everything "by the book". Luckily 2 managed to hatch by themselves, but I had to assist the 3rd one. Are yours needing assisting?
It died before it could pip, so it could have used my help, I guess...
I'm so sorry Was it only the one? Are your others o.k?
Here are a couple of pictures of the chick that died in the shell.
