Can't seem to get any tech support. Can't seem to reset it. Alarm was very annoying while trying to figure out why it won't climb to set temps.

Only 4 eggs left.... Cmon lil ones...post #2489 of 33663/24/16 at 6:13pmSo sorry. I too am a newbie. Year 2 and this year at Christmas one of my Americauns went broody. I did not even know what that was but some friends at work have been mentoring me. So I found out that I could buy fertile eggs. Bought 3, they sent 4 and on day 21 she hatched out 3 baby chicks. Broody hen is the way to go. She does absolutely everything for the eggs. She turns them, keeps them warm and with the correct humidity. I now have 3 9 week old chicks running around my garage. I can't wait for warm weather and for them to be big enough to join the bigger hens in the coop. Mama still keeps them all together and warm at night in cold Vermont. Keep trying but go broody next time is my advice.post #2490 of 33663/24/16 at 6:51pmQuote:Originally Posted by Kayanne

I tried that, and my broody decided to kill the chicks as they were hatching.
I'm really glad it worked for you! There are many wonderful broodies out there, but mine wasn't one of them. Plus, none of the other hens have gone broody since then, so I'd still be waiting if I didn't have an incubator.
What kind of chicks do you have, Kayanne?Vision without action is just a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.Vision without action is just a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
