Thread Starter 
My name is Darci. My husband, Josh and I have had 4 hens for over a year and just hatched 3 chicks under one of our Rhode Island Reds. Hoping for advice and knowledge to improve our hatch rate next time around.
Our current flock:
2 Rhode Island Red hens
1 Easter Egger hen
1 White Leghorn hen
1 White Leghorn chick
1 Barred Rock chick
1 Bantam Black Wyandotte chick

Our disappointing first hatch already has me wanting to have my husband go out and buy me a bunch of chicks. Our third chick that hatched yesterday died. 2 live chicks out of 12 original eggs has me really bummed out.

Well, I hope your remaining chicks stay alive and healthy.

 

There are tons of helpful articles on incubating and brooding chicks on here.

 

Or, like Yorkshire Coop said

Sorry for your hatching problems. Lots of folks don't even want to bother - they just get young chicks.
