This morning my two hatchers were fluffy but one was crook- (sp) legged. his leg was bleeding and it could not walk. Farmer said he had to be put down. What causes that? Is it just a regular birth defect? I have one that is really strong walking around everywhere but one of his legs slide out too. I think it is strong enough to make it though. Not near what the other was. I had two this morning we had to hatch out. We are on day 24 and they had been pipped for way to long. We were really scared we were going to loose them. They were stuck in the shell. I am not sure why the Humidity and temperature were PERFECT? We took the remaing 3 out very carefully listened and candled. Fully grown but dead!!! Why! Why! Why! The one that we helped that was furthest along is laying on his side in the bator breathing very hard (sleeping I hope). The one that didn't make alot of progress, Is chirping away and on his feet often. When should I lose hope on the latargic one that is just laying and breathing hard? Gosh this has been a really rough batch had one die during unzip! One die after hatch. 3 die Fully Grown in Eggs. ONE Surviver! and 2 fighting for life right now!!!
