    Well there is a forum already that has many valuable suggestions in it for beginners. Something I would like to share in your thread is to mix cooked eggs in the scratch for your newly hatched batches. I didn't recognize the importance of a nutrient called Choline in the growth of tendons and ligaments. This is especially important for turkey chicks. Eggs have a lot of Choline. Ever since I started adding it I never had a turned out leg in one of my chicks again.

    You can keep the thread but that's probably why people haven't posted anything.

    Have you tried "water candling"? I always have a hard time with brown eggs....that's what made me try it.
