Yeah... Learning, slowly, but learning! Twasn't expecting much of anything with these, it is just the massive amount that die at lockdown that bothers me....... Last batch was terrible, and they were not shipped. And, I have set eggs from five different flocks with similar results with each one.
And thanks, I'll get that brahma someday!!!
Yes.... New chicks!!! One of which is a CCL. Did I mention I LOVE CCL?
I'll get pics of the new peepers soon!
I wonder some times if its turning to long or bacteria . Was a guy last year had a hundred percent hatch in a self made bator with shipped eggs from McMurry . Cain't remember if he hand turned but he used sterile gloves every time he handled the eggs . I don't do all that but I try to remember to wash my hands good before handling the eggs . in a pinch I use alcohol keep a big bottle close to the bators . You got chicks that's the main thing . Not many of us have time to baby incubators . any why I left some eggs under a broody today and added some more . I rather not but she is the third one to go broody . Maybe she'll do better this time round .
