@Ruby (if your still up) so I see a bater ad&WTB
I'm mobile pretty much. (overly mobile in the ACTUAL sense depending on who you ask lol) so the sites not fully compatible.(and don't fb,never have never will too personnal to go into-nothing against people who do just miss some of the people who died over it&harsh unnecessary gossip). I'm weird LMBO it's ok most people love that about me. Anyhow I should know by this weekend if they are bringing eggs or not. (comming from way above,,almost canton)
I will see let you know either way though.Oh&I bet your boys are so glad their mommy has such a genuine 😃 smile.
Good luck with all your hatches byc!

Hey guy's earlier I noticed one of my Ameracaunas had pipped. I don't know when. It's super tiny. Not suprised that no progress has been made. I have noticed that the membrane is turning tan. Should I be worried about this? I haven't heard it chirp yet either...

Tan is A Darker Yellow, if it's tan or yellow it's drying out and needs moisture. At least that is what I have read.

I candled, still movement and Veining, how long does it take for an internal pip to happen after a Draw Down?

Please answer my question.

Ugh so I helped hatch 3 of 4 birds at my hatch a week or so ago.

1 golden died Monday and 1 has a crippled foot. Not sure bout 3rd yet. Have not looked super close.

Is this why people who are hands of choose tone hands off? Or do some helps work out fine?

I ask because we want to breed these chicks not have for pets.

Thanks and good morning.

I candle all through hatch to see what's going on and make sure everyone is on a safe time line. But if there are very large pips, with chick & membrane exposed I don't.
Are you kidding!?! These are like the cutest chicks I've ever seen! And usually I only think my chicks are the cutest ever. wink.png btw, how did you get them sooo fluffy? I love them!

Good, I'm not the only one! lol  Glad to hear he's doing good. And do you have room under the chair, my son still sleeps with momma, even though I put his bed in my room!!!

]i think I screwed up your quote but I tried that with the first...putting his bed in my room and he'd only sleep In it if I did too, so it was totally pointless. Lol. Mine slept with me till the baby was born and then all 4 of us couldn't fit. If it wasn't for the little guy they would still be sleeping with me. It is nice to have the extra too now, though.

 

I candled my eggs last night, day 17.  Appears one of my lavender orpingtons quit within the last day or 2, I'm bummed.  I've had quitters after lockdown, and very early quitters, but not at day 16ish!   :/

 

 

ETA - did the little zipper finish on his own???  :fl

Draw downs "can" happen shortly after lockdown, but can also take a couple of days.  It happens gradually.  But usually the pips will start within 24 hours after full draw down.

Im pretty sure that some work out fine. From what I've heard the reason they say hands off is some people move in to help to early making things harder for the chicks to hatch. I'm pretty sure it's all very time sensitive. You don't want to be to early or late. I think this will only get better with experience. smile.png also this forum helps so much. smile.png

So this morning there was a little bit more cracked. Not much. Still don't hear chirping and the membrane is starting to look brown? Can it still get through this way? How will I know if I need to do something? I would like it to be a last resort because another one pipped last night. I don't want to open the lid and dry that one out. We are on day 22. Thanks. smile.png
