If you were asking me- I'm sorry, but no I don't sell hatching eggs to anyone under 18. Not even outside of byc. If you want to have your parents contact me directly, I'll be glad to go over purchase options with them.
I have a teenager myself and I dont allow him to buy things online. If it's something he wants to get with his own money, he pays me and I make the purchase 🙂

Makes Sense. But my parents, as long as I ask, let me buy stuff off of Facebook. But there is almost nothing I want to buy off of Facebook, unless it has to do with animals, Chickens and Rabbits Mainly. My parents don't have a credit card or debit card or checks, they do cash for everything. I don't know about money orders. Are any of the stores that sell Chickens, still selling Chickens?
ETA; I Meet Up With The People From Facebook And Pay Cash.

Around here, our Rural King is still selling chicks. Last time I looked at them they had production reds and RIR's left. Do you have any hatcheries in driving distance from you? Many have a store for buying in person and picking up orders. Here in Ohio, Meyer Hatchery has a bargain bin in the store with all kinds of unsold poultry on sale. I picked up some layers from them last spring and saw lots of cash buyers getting good deals.

Yep my local buyers always pay cash too 🙂
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!

I'm not YOUR parent so I can't fuss at you. Please be careful babe, in VA a fb/cl (buyer/seller)serial killer hurt ALOT of families. There's strength in numbers NEVER meet alone(get some MACE@True value&be AWARE of your environment) a lot of canis lupus appear as sheep...canis lupus devour young people,espically baiting w\ bunnies,goats,poultry. Be careful little 🐇

I'm on my second hatch. The first one didn't go well but this batch looks good. I have four babies that hatched and one that I knew was good when I candled before I put them into lock down mode. The other babies keep kicking the egg so I tried to open the Bator a hair so I could move the egg where I can see it. Because of that the humidity dropped to 50. Now I'm getting paranoid. What do I do?

Had one that took forever, ok it was 4 days of assisting but felt like forever. Then when it came out it was a bleeder! Never seen blood before but it was scary. Then the last one also took forever and came out on its own with the yolk sac not closed. But everyone is doing amazing now!! They are all beautiful and extremely active and little piggies that don't stop eating and drinking from the second you put them in the brooder. Don't have a group shot yet but I'll get one, still have one in the incubator. Now the silkie eggs are hatching. I think there is like 5 or 6 pips. Locked down with 2 external pips...oops!


Oh how precious. It sounds like for the most part you had a really good hatch!!

Get a paper towel. Fold it up and dip it in warm water. You can also use a sponge. When you open the lid always have one ready and put it in and close the lid. This guarantees you humidity won't stay down for long. Make sure the water is very warm though. Also don't keep it to wet just more damp. Good luck. smile.png

I keep a couple wet sponges in my bator so when I open if my humidity drops like that I just rewet my sponge(s) and stick it back in there.  I hatch at 75% but there are times especially if I am in or out repeatedly,  it'll drop below that 60% I use as a guidline. Don't be paranoid, especially if there are no active pippers. If there are active pippers just keep an eye on the membrane and if it starts to turn yellowish/brown, then moisten it and chceck the inner membrane to make sure it doesn't dry on  the chick.
