Hands on hatching and help - Page 468

post #4671 of 7478
Ok I pulled it out and immediately replaced it with a warm damp paper towel. The humidity didn't even drop and the temp is good. The poor little chick still hadn't dried. My humidity is just to high. I made a separate box in the brooder so the others who are about 3 days old can't bother it while it recoups. It hears the others and wants out though lol.

Update- the one I pulled out is dry and happy in the brooder. 2 more have hatched, 2 more have externally pipped and look close to zipping and 2 more after that are wiggling with no holes.. smile.png doing good so far.. smile.png

They all look like black copper marans. The rooster was black copper maran. I got these for the colorful eggs. Hens were black copper marans, f1 and f2 olive eggers, Ameracaunas and columbians I think it was... smile.png

So fun to see all the chicks and ducks making their appearance! 🐣 Congrats to all with new babies hatching!!

I'm still in waiting mode lol. Bator #1 eggs are due to hatch next Thursday (Combination of shipped and my own birds' eggs).
Just got bator #2 fired up today so I just set another group of my Calico/Mille Fleur bantam Cochins and the Ayam Cemani eggs from cjwaldon I won last week. Looks like they had a rough trip. I've got 2 with rolling detached air cells and one wobbly/ loose. So those are sitting upright in the bator and I'll hope for the best. The other 4 AC eggs look good.
We have Blue, Black & Splash Copper Marans, Calico/Mille Fleur and Self Blue Bantam Cochins, LF Cochins, and a laying flock of various heritage breeds, EE's, production breeds, mutts and more! We also have Quarter Horses, a pony and rescued dogs and cats. I usually have an incubator or 2 running too!
