    Hatched my 12th batch lastnight.
    Had one chick who was malformed.
    Have hatched plenty from that combination of male and female but this takes the cake.

    I put it to sleep. But I was surprised when this popped out of an egg.


    Poor little darling. It was so determined to get out of that egg, too.

    Ive seen puppies born that way but never a cot. Interesting. Hard to account for all the weird stuff thatll come out of an incubator.
