    My first chick just hatched and there are black spots all over in the inside of the egg, it looks like mold. Is this possible? Is it ok?? Will my chicks be ok?? It is the cutest little thing, it is a sizzle from jimnjay, it is black with silver highlights. I can't wait to see it dry.

    I am trying to get a picture posted, but having issues.

    I'm not sure it would be mold...staining maybe from where some of the veining was... my thought... I'm sure the chicks are fine...

    I agree..there are often remnants inside the egg after a fresh hatch. I don't think its mold either.

    OK, I feel a bit better!! The chick is doing really well. I will start talking to it and it will come up as close as it can get and lift its head up and look at me. It is chirping away. [​IMG] 1 down 9 to go.
