    I hatched out 9 white seramas and one has huge bulging eyes. Here it is along with a normal hatch mate.

    It was probably a bit too sideways in the shell and pressed against the shell. These chicks usually don't hatch, I think because of brain damage. If it's eating and drinking normally, I think you might have yourself an ugliest chicken contest winner in a few months [​IMG]

    I don't think she's ugly at all. Hope she makes it.
