Thanks! I am hatching a surprise mix. The breeder stated the eggs came from their "silkies, showgirls and sizzles pen". So honestly I have no idea what will actually hatch! LOL

Ohh!!! I want some!!!

 

My Eggs are due the same time!!

Happy Hatching!!

Good luck everyone.

Sweet!!!!

So I ended up taking out the two oldest chicks & putting them in the brooder. Then I took the shrink-wrapped chick out & did an assisted hatch. I never did that before but after reading the information on here I decided to give it a try. I took it in the bathroom with the hot shower running, kept dripping water on the membranes with a cotton ball, & peeled the shell away from the membrane on about 3/4 of the egg.  He kicked himself free after that but I didn't want to interfere too much so I left the bottom of the egg shell sticking to his butt & put him back in the incubator.  I will try and get the rest of the shell off tomorrow when I put him in the brooder. I was really worried about opening the bator while eggs were pipping but I put some wet paper towels in & one hatched after that, so I guess it was ok. 

 

Most of the chicks seem to have omphalitis, maybe that's why the zipper got stuck.  Tomorrow I am going to put them all in the brooder & wash their butts & put some antibacterial ointment on. They all seem to be pretty active, except for "Egg-butt," so hopefully that's a good sign that they might pull through.

were the eggs washed? did the water get moldy in the bator?

The EE eggs were shipped and arrived with nearly destroyed air cells again (most roll freely around the egg) but at least 11 of them are currently developing. That's exactly how many started to develop out of the last 24 I was shipped and only 2 were able to hatch, so I guess we'll just have to see how it goes. BUT 11 of my 12 turkey eggs are developing! This is my first time incubating turkey eggs and my first time incubating eggs that were laid on my property and not ordered online, so I'm super excited to get some poults!

:celebrate

Ain't you got a chainsaw?

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.
