Hello fellow chicken lovers,
We had a chick pip on day 17- we rushed to get lockdown set up, adding water and bumping up humidity. (We usually dry hatch). The chick died after a few hours. It is now day 21 and we have had nothing since. I'm so confused. Why did this chick hatch early and die and why has nothing happened since with our other eggs? I need encouragement. We candled only 2 yesterday and although we see an air sac and completely full egg-no movement. When we added the water for lockdown, the temp did spike to over 115 degrees for only about 10 min. max. We got it cooled down though. Am I missing a major component?
