All the girls in my hatch are sold, a friend is getting 6 and another friend of a friend is taking 6, and I get to keep the CCL males and Luke claimed Godzilla now named SPOOK and HarmonyAnn claimed another and named her Pumpkin.
The pipper in the incubator was still alive this morning, the mom of the kid I watch talked me into letting him go over night, she freaked for him, I said ok just for you, but in the morning the bator stank so bad I needed to do something, I made its pip bigger , mind you its been pipped way way too long and its veins still huge and unabsorbed, this typically means it has an umbilical/intestical issue that it cannot or will not absorb, so it was just living in its shell like that, it was so sad, he was active and everything. I opened him up before the cull and his intestines grew on the outside, through a hole higher up and to the side, NOT where the umbilical where the yolk sack was absorbed, he even had a first poop in the shell. I had to cull. I had seen this only two times but they never lived, usually died in the shell. poor guy. the other egg chick was upsidedown and couldnt get out as I figured, another female.
Incubator is bleached, sterilized and up and running to dry out. I think kiddo has orders coming in today for serama chicks, and I think I have a order for CCL now that I started hatching. DID I ?
Poor little guy. I had one of my eggs die too. Even knowing it was likely and is still likely to lose some of the remaining 26 I'm still a little sad.
You'll have an order from me for eggs in the spring i think. Giant blue eggs! woot.
