Help with chick!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, it's day 20 for my chicks in the incubator and two have started cracking. One of them cracked sometime yesterday morning a little bit and has not had much improvement since then. Is this normal? Should I help it? If so how? I've only done ducks in the past and this never happened before . Thank you

We're new to incubation too. For a faster response post this question in the hatch along thread. There are a lot of experienced folks on there all the time who are happy to help. Seriously, those folks don't sleep over there. Lol

Hi welcome-byc.gif

How many hours has the chick been externally pipped? If it's less than 24 hours just leave it be for now, they can take 24 hours plus to start zipping. Have a read of this article ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/step-by-step-guide-to-assisted-hatching
It has great information on how long to wait and what to do.

Good luck with your chicks frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I've never hatched any, so can't be of much use.   Please put  " hatching information," in the search box - it should come up with articles for you to read.  As to posting on any thread,  is the same way you posted hear.   Just pick a thread that interests you.
