GOOD NEWS!!! thank you for coming back!! sometimes ppl dont tell us and let us hang! :highfive:

I've seen posts that leave people hanging, they frustrate me too. I try to respond but sometimes I forget. Short term memory was broke in the wreck.

So, the sort of final count.  I set 24, 6 weren't fertile, so 18 went to lockdown.  14 hatched with little to no problem, the one shrink wrapped one needed some assistance but that was because on it's way out it kicked it's umbilical cord and was bleeding after it emerged.  Some cornstarch fixed that.  I have 15 chicks now looking nice and fluffy.  Three eggs that are still just sitting there and only one is rocking a little bit.  So just wait and watch.

I just realized you were the one who wrote that article!  Thank you so much for your help.  Just knowing someone else is rooting for the chicks has been a big help.
