    These were born this past week, I set 15 eggs, 2 clear, 9 hatched, 1 died within an hour and 1 drowned itself in the waterer leaving me these 7. The one that drowned was 24 hours old but had never developed any coordination, it just couldn't get its feet under itself. The others never pipped, when we opened the eggs they were fully formed but the membranes had stuck to them. Is this shrink wrapping?

    The four above are Golden Cuckoo Marans.

    These three below are Orpingtons, not sure about #1 but I think 2 and 3 are Lavender Orps
