The last egg of our hatch hatched a day later than the others. The little chick was born with no eyes. Not even a sign of any form of development of eyes. It`s head also seems to be slightly irregularly shaped and it has more that the typical new chick diffuculity walking and the others have been picking on it. After an hour of discussion...lots of tears from me...and sensible conversation from my hubby we have decided culling will be the most humane. The blindness would make life difficult enough but there seems to be more on top of it. This is the first time we have had to make this decision and it is making me feel ill. We raise birds for eggs and meat but at least our meat birds have an excellent quality of life before getting to that point and it just seems like this little one has nothing. Not sure why I am posting ...maybe just need a little emotional vent with others who may have "been there".
