Hello - I am currently hatching Bantams & Frizzles. So far the Bantams are surviving and thriving but 3 of the Frizzles have died! 1 died in the incubator and 2 in the brooder. Before death, they were fine and then went down fast - twisting their necks back and legs extended. Could this be a genetic issue since none of the Bantams have died? Also, the Bantams are not "picking" on them from what I have seen. Got fertilized eggs from 2 different people & thinking maybe the frizzles are inbred too much or something? Any advice would be great... hoping a few live!
