And I am keeping the temp under the heat lamp at about 100 degrees according to my meat thermometer. Is that about right?

If I am understanding the correct anatomy of hatching I think this is his problem. The foot is over the head.

I assume you dont have an incubator you could put it in? Maybe under a heat lamp if you can get it humid enough. Whip up something to hatch it in?
Good luck!

For the cracked egg. It is day 15

Okay, Amy...can you fix this?  This "Australorp" hatched tonight. See anything odd about it?

She's in kindergarten.  'Regular school' was a nightmare for her.  I got tired of the fight every morning (and it was only getting worse).  We made the switch about a month ago and haven't looked back.  For the first few weeks I made it clear every morning she could go to school if she wanted.  She never did.  After a while I stopped reminding her and she stopped asking.  The other day we were driving home from a homeschoolers meetup and passed the turn off for her brick and mortar school and out of nowhere she stated "I never want to go to school ever again."

I wish I knew what happened.  She went to kindergarten prepared academically, developmentally and emotionally.  I think something happened to make her feel unsafe in that environment but she hasn't shared with me yet what it was.
