Ok, I began incubating at the end of August. I have hatched chicks, quail, and ducklings.both quail and ducklings have hatched without s problem... However, I seem to have a high rate of leg problems with chicks. Here's is my situation. I have hatched only 15 chicks, and three of those have had leg problems, spayed leg and one chick that was a "scooter". All three chicks have been from different sources, and different hatches. Here are pictures of the chicks: This was the first; a black copper Marans that I got locally. The second was a blue Marans that was a shipped egg. I unfortunately lost the picture of him. He leg was bent backwards. It stuck straight back. The most recent in a bantam Cochin that hatched today from my own flock. I put him in a shot glass to try to treat him I use a wonderful hova bator genesis 1588 with a turner, and a still air little giant as a hatcher. The genesis hold a solid temp at 99 and humidity is a breeze with the tray. I have logged the incubation and it holds at 45-50. The still air holds a pretty good temp at 100, I do have a hard time getting the humidity up, even with a sponge and those little water balls. So is there something I am doing, or not doing to create this problem? Should I stop using the still air and only hatch in the genesis? Help me!!
