    I just had a SFH chick hatch and noticed a large bump on its head. After some brief research I discovered this is known as a vaulted skull. It seems that in SFH only this can be fatal. This chick is the first to hatch out of 18 and seems to be doing okay, but will this continue? Does anyone have experience with survival rates for SFHs with vaulted skulls?
