Mike,
I would definitely suspect as you stated that this defect is most likely of genetic origin. It is showing multiple developmental issues such as anatomical malformations as well as under development with respect to the age of the embryo. I definitely agree with your comments about "knowing" your incubator setup. I believe the number one error involved with incubator issues is not "knowing" the actual ambient temperature environment right where the eggs are setting within the incubator chamber. Many digital temp monitors or controls can be a few degrees off, and in my opinion should always be checked with a decent laboratory grade mercury thermometer setting in with the eggs. Nice work on the documentation.

Kelly
