post #38751 of 41601

I gave them some chicks different times but each hen is different. The hen can hear her chicks even when they are in the egg and the chicks supposedly know their mama from hearing her while they are in the egg. I have had hens hatch eggs and one hen take all the chicks. I gave 3 hens some chicks once and they started fighting over who they belonged to. Could always try and just watch for drama. My aunt gave some hens chicks recently and one hen started attacking the chicks and killed one. Some hens have to go the whole 3 weeks before they snap out of the trance. After the frizzle I better not have another go broody. HAHA!

I am wondering if the youth of the rooster, and that he'd just started breeding as I was collecting the eggs makes a difference? All of them candled and looked good, but just didn't make it. 

I've kept the humidity in the high 20s/low 30s during incubating, and bumped to mid 50s during lockdown. I know there were no clears at lockdown, and no blood rings, they just haven't hatched. The leghorns started pipping on day 19, and the one AM hatched on day 20. I have no pips, no rocking back and forth. 

 

I'm going to leave them a couple more days, but I really don't think any more are going to hatch.....

 

 

so any thoughts or suggestions? temps and humidity were pretty stable, with that one temporary spike in temp the only thing that changed

You didn't sing to them

I'm loving these little frizzle chicks! Their feathers are just so crazy.

This one is the little rooster I'm going to try to keep!

He has little orange tips on his white feathers already. What do you think, @Flowerbh, is he going to turn all orange like Sunni? smile.png

The box beside this one is slap FULL of broody attitudes. I took the eggs from them and moved them to THIS box so I could keep feeling underneath them. This one rushes over to sit on them. This is me telling her NO, MY EGGS!! lau.gif


I'm wondering if I should just give them some chicks! Would they just share them??

They're not going to lay the next few weeks, might as well get something out of them. Let them sit on some

Sit on it, Potsie!  You, too, Ralph Mouth.  

 

You should have chickens with those names.  Never mind boys don't sit on eggs, just do it.

You could have just saved yourself the time and only read my posts.   You would have been just as fulfilled.
