I am happy to be a part of your community. I have been reading threads searching for answers, advice, and HOPE! So thank you to everyone who has posted before me. It is such a tremendous help.
I recently was inspired by another member who had hatched a chick from Trader Joe fertilized eggs. And I am happy to report we have one little chick out of the carton. Eight were yolkers and the others were early deaths.
I think this little guy might need some company. I have a second batch that will not hatch for another two weeks. Is that too big of a gap?
