Got some eggs from my Sister, jumbo+ they dont fit in a jumbo box at all. Put them into the incubator, and got 3 chicks with deformed talons. (100% of her hatch) Sis doesn't know which hen lays these eggs, (all her stock is about 2 1\2 YO) and when I told her about the defects, her thought is the Roo. My question is, is that a good thought, can this defect come from the Roo? Neither of them have this defect. 2 of the chicks look black sex link, I think I can ID the hen from this, my bet is she has a barred rock hen and a Red Roo,,, (my thought is the hen) I will cull the 3 birds, they will not be breeders, but if they can manage to get around, eat, drink, roost, I will let them lay eggs for the table. I like a nice big egg, but the talon issue is not something I want in my flock! 1 of them has a talon on backwards and is having problems getting around, I am seeing improvement,,, Can defective talons come from a bad rooster? (old, genetics, other) IF she replaces the Rooster, should I try another batch?
