No, let's stay here!!!
Yes, let's stay here!!!!! I have some set to lockdown Wednesday, some more set to lockdown sometime after that....some more after that....and some more after that.....and hopefully I win the Serama auction so some more after that.....
Then I am going to try to stop and hatch out Rhode Islands from my flock and sell chicks to support my habit!!!!
smchickfarm....I love your pictures of the babies! I need you to come help me take good pictures of my guys. I keep blaming the bad pics on the camera, but maybe it's just me
HOW ARE EVERYONE'S BABIES DOING???????
This is the link for the float test
The waiting was killing me so I opened all 4 and they were all fully developed but they were all dead? Any ideas guys? I would hate for this to happen again I have 19 going in lockdown Thursday. I will be better prepared this time tho! I only had my hatcher Incubator setup about 5-6 hrs before I put the eggs in maybe it was to soon?...but the temp was holding at 100 degrees and my humidity was holding between 66-68%. Any help would be great it seems like all you guys done better than me? I only had 3 out of 7 hatch.
Babies are doing great. Float tested the only egg left and it didn't do anything, scratched the shell heard nothing and then candled it saw a fully developed chick with no movement. So I decided to open the shell via the air sack, saw a fully developed chick that hadn't touched the membrane and the chick was dead, didn't want to go or see a need to go any farther. The cause, i don't know and I guess don't care because I did have a very successful hatch of, here it goes, 23 out of 24. I gave myself a big pat on the back and everyone one BYC for doing such wonderful jobs. Especially us first timers
You had a GREAT hatch!!!! can't wait to see pics!!!
