Hello! Hatching Day - unprepared Newbie

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all! My friend has a farm with happy pet chickens and she gave me 6 eggs and the incubator to try a hatch at home. If any chicks hatch we will keep them two weeks and then they will be at the happy farm with their little chicken family.
I have been reading on here all day and am thankful for all of the tips I have read but have many questions so thought I better register and ask the experts!

We are at Day 21 - and have two pips. There was no humidity measuring device in the incubator so I have no idea if I have the right moisture and am freaking out lol. I wish I had known how much can go wrong as I am very nervous now.

Thanks for the great place to look for help all! smile.png

Hi and welcome to BYC.

 

 

I'd suggest posting your question on the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum. I've never used an incubator, so i can't offer any advice but i can wish you the best of luck.

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

Can your friend talk you through it?   I've never hatched either, so sorry I can help.
