    I can't remember where I read this suggestion, but after some problems with splay leg last hatch I did some research. This time I put in non-slip shelf liner down when I took them out of the turner & it was a GREAT idea! I just wanted to share it for those who weren't aware.

    I use it as well. Also make cleanup a heck of a lot easier, just a toss into washer with laundry soap and bleach.

    I Rarely Have The Splay Legged Problem... I Have The Ultra Small Weave Hardware Cloth Liner In The Hatcher, And Always Start Them Out On A Towel For Bedding In The Brooder For The 1st Week Or So... I Get An Occaisional Splay Leg Out Of The Hatcher, But The Towel In The Brooder Normally Fixes It. I Do Like The Shelf Liner Idea Tho...
