So I have two EE, my rooster is a pure Ameraucana blue. I have 3 blue hens and one splash.
First time ever hatching these.
I'm having a hard time distinguishing some of the Ameraucanas from the EE. They are 3 days old.
I removed the others and moved them to the brooder. They were picking at his butt and I think they were hurting him. He seems lonely now. I thimmed the thinnest part as it was attached to his leg. I feel bad leaving it alone in the incubator.
Is that his intestines, does he have a chance? I...
I had my first hatchling and he's doing a great job, others started poking holes from inside. This one has been like this for hours. Is it normal? I totally missed the first one being born.
How long does it take after they poke the first little hole?
I'm not good at the terminology of pipping...
I wasn't expecting this to happen until tomorrow, but I have my first ever baby chick just hatch! How long do I keep him in the incubator? Do I waste for the others? What do I do?
I am so excited! My first baby on mother's day!
No, I candled them a couple of times but I'm not sure what I'm looking at.
I removed one about a week ago that didn't seem to have anything inside, and when I cracked it, there was an embryo. :(
I am noticing some of the eggs I can't see through.
Hello, today my incubator says there are 5 days to hatching. Some of the eggs I can't see anything in them.
If I am reading instructions correctly at day 18, I need to remove the turner and increase humidity to about 70-75%.
Is s the development you see consistent with about day 16?
