Any suggestions?
Hello just joining, but WOW I wish I had found this thread before! Thanks for the less critical encouragement&points posted...
Just did our first hatch (after finding this site) everything was whacky-bater got unplugged for 3+hours(accident). Candeled on day 20(pre-pip) had miscalculated days possibly. First Chick hatched in day 20...
Still going strong. I took it out too early but thank heavens- because the rest got cooked 😧 they looked like dehydrated jerky. HAD I helped I'd have a lot more chicks right now,,,BUT dusting myself off and trying again soon! DEF a student here&thanks for all those who share it does help a ton!
I wish I knew what to tell you about that bit of sac left, but if that chicks eating&drinking or at least alert. I would wait&see if it resolves itself. Keep us posted!
