Overdue chicks not right (Poultry - Health Treatment)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

A friend just called me. She has been incubating eggs. They hatched on the 24th day. They cannot get off their backs to stand up. They just wiggle around, and stay on backs. She was wondering what the problem might be, before she tries to incubate again. She got the eggs from some company. Would they have been old?

I think the temperature in the incubator must have been too low. A few posts down there is a question about incubating eggs with a link to a trouble shooting site in one of the responses. HTH

Hi, sounds like it is time to change the wafer in your incubator. I had the same problem last year and a new wafer fixed the problem. Daryll
