Wow I've missed a lot, Jen you have chicks!! Have you tried some sugar water? At Tractor Supply they had little packets of Save-A-Chick to mix in the water for weak or slow starting chicks. I've used a syringe (the medicine kind without needles) to give chicks tiny droplets of water, just be careful not to squirt too much, they'll drink it if you do this unless they are close to death. I've always been told you'll die from lack of water before food so maybe sugared water will make her perk up & eat. I hope she turns around for you, they're all so cute! It looks like their boots are working to, it took me forever to do that to a quail chick & yours/sixpugs look wayyy better lol.
Will the Reptipro 6000s have free shipping like the 5000s on ebay? If so I'll probably order one the 7/8th when I get my tax return. Do the 6000s have a bigger shelf than the other? I can't remember mine's measurements. Ok one more thing, who do we pre order them through, both incubators.org & reptipro on ebay or just incubators.org?I finally got some emu eggs & picked them up on the 3rd in Ohio, yayyy!
I got 5 from her so I still plan on getting 4 more, or maybe to keep from overcrowding just get 5-6 when I get the 6000. My day 1 weigh in was:
To bad you can't candle these suckers, watching an emu chick developing would be pretty neat, well & would also elimate the 45+ day wait to see if they're in there...it's only day 2 (just about 3) & the suspense is driving me bonkers, good grief I'm so impatient...I'll be busting out my stethoscope in a few weeks
