Hi we have never had an experience with this, so are looking for answers. Considering the number of broodies we've had this year, we've had a dissapointingly low hatch rate and I really think it has to do with the heat, ,I think the heat killed the majority of the developing eggs. Anyway, out of the last batch we had one hatch. Baby doesn't seem to be growing very fast, seems a little weaker than she should be, doesn't seem to eat as well as she should, and has pasty butt. How do we treat this, and what causes it? She is on non-medicated chick starter and occasional scrambled egg. normally wouldnt give her the egg, but thought it might help her get stronger, which it may have, who knows, she is stronger than a week ago. She is about ten days old now. We had five hatch six weeks or so before her and they all developed into normal healthy pullets/ cockerels, but that was at the onset of the extreme heat wave, so they missed most of it.
