Hatch-a-long for people who don't have much time - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Wasn't sure if you are now taking your original crosses back to BCM or if they are still just 1/2 BCM. Can't remember how much time has elapsed since you started the project, or what generation you are on.

Can you open the greenhouse up during the day to get more ventilation and close it at night?

My eggs are coming from Gen 1, so producing Gen 2.

 

I leave the doors open 24/7, actually thinking of putting a fan in there. There are 8 thermostatically adjusted ports, 4 in the ceiling and 4 in the wall.

I put stress aid in the water before they were put out to the brooder, and each one was dipped in water to teach them, and there are 2 3 week olds in the brooder with them to keep teaching them...???

 

No sure what else I can do. The last hatch had no such die off. Its certainly possible that some wild animal came to them yesterday, or maybe there was some crackle of thunder...
