    Make sure you let it dry of before putting it in the brooder

    yep a silver pied, see how his foot looks tomorrow....he is still wet and fresh out of the eggs, his foot maybe fine. Best not to remove from incubator untill dry...good way for them to get chilled.

    Very cute! On my chicks their feet usually straighten out after I take them out of the incubator. If it feet don't straighten here is an article on the UPA's website. It shows how to make something to fix the foot problem:

    Not sure how well this would work with peachicks, but I give a few drops of B Complex liquid on the beak of chicken chicks that hatch with curled toes. Then I add a dropperful to a quart of water the first week. Curled toes can come from a vitamin B deficiency.
