    What's happening today? Have you checked with any hatchers like @WVduckchick or @Lacrystol or @Orca5094 ?

    Is this the one with the red, swollen eye?

    If it's the wrong ender, it's possible that being upside down irritated it's eye and that's why it red and swollen. Saw some very strange things in my malpositioned chicks this year.

    cheez a weez, I reckoned your experience would be helpful here. Mercy, hatching is not (as I have written many times) for the faint of heart.
