My last 3 chickens to hatch today (day 21) all had a few issues. None of these were assisted hatches either. Two of my silkies had a small amount (pea sized) of yolk sac still attached which surprised me as they were in there the longest, my other 15 hatched without any issues. Just checked on them and one has totally absorbed it, and the other has reduced by half...so thrilled. I left them by themselves in the gator and upped the humidity. Seems to have worked a treat! This forum is fantastic ! I really need some advice on my last chick though. It has a twisted neck. It hatched this way as its only a couple of hours ago. She seemed to pip just under half way of the egg but she got out herself and is healthy in ever other way. From the moment she emerged she didn't seem to straighten it out. She can't hold her head up much and scurrys in circles or backwards. Her head droops and she seems to balance on her beak! I don't want to lose her as she is so gorgeous...and advice?
