So 30 of 43 hatched so far. Today is day 21. Had 2 dead after pip...like perfectly formed but dead. The other 11 are just chillin there, but seem like they had developed. It's weird bc most of what hasn't hatched yet are the dark Moran and wellsummer eggs. I had 3 of each hatch out of 7 of each that went into lockdown. Do morans and wellsummer take longer??? (I noticed they have a thicker shell). Kinda bummed if these 11 don't hatch bc I am sure they are fully developed.
I hope the 11 hatch soon.
Wonderful! Good luck.
I want to see these hatch!
WHOA! It was a busy weekend from what I have read and caught up on. There are cute, little baby chicks all over the place!!!!
UPDATE - Chick with Leg Injury
So, I continued vitamins. My little chickie continues to eat and drink normal. She is walking MUCH closer to normal now too. She does seem to have a buddy that she leans on periodically but she is not sitting on her knee, dragging her toes, laying crooked, or hobbling anymore. So, I am going to continue with the vitamins and monitoring. Of the 6 chicks she was the only one with an issue. I thought she was injured during shipment, there were ONLY 6 chicks in a box (no extras, not heat bubbles, nothing... and I thought they may have been tossed around a lot. But, as of now she is getting better!
UPDATE - Check Season
Since Feb 17th we have had 49 chicks. 14 hatched here and 35 were shipped day olds. So far I have had 48 of 49 thrive, grow, live and "make it". I didn't think much of this until someone today asked me if I was A Chicken Whisperer. I told them I was not and that I was simply a Crazy Chicken Lady.
UPDATE - Duck Incubation
So, there are 6 days to go on my Anconas (due 9pm Saturday 30th). I am ready. I know they aren't ready, but I am. I am more invested in this hatch, because I REALLY want these ducklings, and I am all wrapped up in my own head. So, in an effort to calm my crazy train I am doing simple things 2 times a day. 1. I smell checking. 2. I visually check... yep, still 11 white eggs. 3. I read the humidity.
And that is it. I have told myself no more candling. Leave them along. Just leave them alone!
I'm glad the injured legged chick is making progress. So you're THE Crazy Chicken Lady!
Unless you need the bator right away, I'd give it a little more time.
Only one, and the hatch is done?
