    So much info and invaluable if you are hatching. I have this printed out in my "hatching binder" and refer to it every hatch!

    This is one of my favourite articles on BYC. I have recommended it to others and linked to it so many times. Really stresses the importance of giving the chick chance to hatch on its own. Fantastic!

    There is a lot in this article that goes beyond assisted hatching!

    This could be a book
