    From what I understand my low humidity in my incubator caused curled feet and possibly splayed legs. This Little Giant incubator wil never be used again. I did everything possible to boost the humidity on this hatch. Sponges, washcloths, plugged the bottom drainholes with styrofoam and the humidity never increased over 50%.
    Any way, here are pictures of the three chick

    I think your chicks will turn out absolutely fine....your 'boots' and 'shackles' are very well placed.

    I put a rubber drawer liner down after several attempts that did no good with the vet wrap. Several hours later it worked
