HELP! Early hatcher with half shell missing and veiny membrane - Page 2

post #11 of 13

If the veins have drawn in you can chip away the shell a little at a time and do an assisted hatch.

:(   :hugs So sorry. That's how I felt after my very first hatch 17 in and one survivor (that ended up being a special needs roo). I swore I wasn't going to do it again. It was too hard getting to lockdown with 17 chicks and loosing them. I think it was about three weeks later I decided to try again. I'm so glad I did. I haven't had another bad hatch. Each hatch got better and better as I learned more and more. I even hit a 100% hatch.

 

Give yourself time. It's hard to loose them all and maybe at some point you'll be ready to try again. I was so hoping that one will make it.
