I am so over this hatch! Maybe it's the weather or the five days of chickens hatching but I'm glad it's over! I got the incubator cleaned up, the Maran eggs put back in and the temperature set to 99.5. I'm looking very forward to that hatch but I'm glad I'll have a week's break! The little chicken I peeled out of it's shell this morning spends most of it's time on it's back doing the dying cockroach! Not good when your siblings are 2 and 3 days older geesh! And then one of the other chicks just doesn't look right. I showed it to my husband last night. I think it's missing a chromosone or something it's face looks weird, it acts drunk, and it's got a slight case of spraddle leg. Double geesh!!! The other four thank goodness are perfectly fine. Has anyone ever had a baby chick that acted like a drunken, crazy legged, goober?
