so out of my 12 Barnevelder eggs (see my thread about using a Little Giant as a hatcher) I have 1 chick hatched overnight who pipped at 7pm and 1 chick who hatched at noon who pipped at noon yesterday Chick who hatched at noon (pipped 12 hrs prior) hatched out with a ton of blood and blood coming frombody attachment. I got that stopped but it just lays in the incubator breathing and not anything else Chick who hatched overnight (pipped at 7pm) is super active but completely uncoordinated. falls all over. Sometimes gets on it's back, sometimes sits on but with feet out front and sometimes staggers around peeping. I had left it in the incubator but now about 12 hrs later I took it out and have it in my bra simply because he was very unhappy in incubator, very unhappy in brooder and not sure he is any happier in bra LOL NOTHING makes this chick happy. I was not expecting it to eat/drink because most of you say they don't but I did try anyhow and no I hatched out a TON of Button quail in the 80's. Once they are dry they are mobile, coordinated-mostly- and eat/drink I've never had a chick so unhappy or one that hatched and did not stand quickly (like my first one mentioned above), but I have also never hatched out chicken chicks I see no other eggs pipping.
