I received a beautiful pair of Buff Brahma Bantam, but got them out of bad circumstances, and illness was involved when I received them. Theyre both very healthy now, but I've been trying to hatch their chicks, and it's been a nightmare. I have no problems like this with the other eggs I hatch, just the Brahmas. The chicks make it up to hatch time, then at least half die in the shell. The ones that do hatch are weak, and can't find their feet. Some of them are splay-legged, but even the ones that aren't can't get up into standing position. I usually come home from work to find them on their backs, and they waste away after a couple of days. I got a great tip from somebody in the Okla thread to put them in cups to keep them from flipping over, so now I have one in a cup, she's been in there for almost two days and shows no sign of gaining any strength to her legs. I've been giving them poly-visol at hatch. They never make it to the point of eating on their own. I have noticed bright green runny poops, far greener and runnier than I've seen in my other chicks. Does this sound like it could be a bacterial infection coming from the hen? I'm getting ready to start treating the pair, just in case. Is there any way to tell what kind of infection, if so? I don't want to give her every antibiotic on the market if it's possible to narrow it down. Thanks in advance.
