    Chick with bit of yolk sac still attached to navel *pics* HELP!

    There is also a possibility that the baby chick didn't hatch out of the egg in time. So it pooped. Causing an infection in the yolk. So the body rejects it. Causing that part of their tummy to pop out a bit when they do hatch out fully. Because the body would have difficulty absorbing something...

    newly hatched chick with prolapse problem

    That can be caused by coming out too early, or it's a genetics. If you tried pulling the chick out of the shell; that can cause it to. Chicks like that, actually cannot survive, but it's difficult. You have to make sure that their environment is moist enough. And that you have to keep it (that...

    How long does it take to actually hatch?

    Sometimes it is also because of genetics. There could've been something wrong with the check. Their lungs weren't fully formed or another organ. Their are many probabilities if the chick dies before hatching.

    How long does it take to actually hatch?

    Actually, I have found out from experience. That if a chick dies after it has already picked and broken part of the shell it could be because there wasn't enough humidity and they choked because their lungs were still developing/getting used to, to handling regular air. (this happened with one...

    MinnesotaNice - Normally you don't help chicks hatch, because the ones that don't almost always have a health problem and die anyway. In some cases people have helped some chicks hatch. But you would have to be there the entire time whenever they start peeping to when they hatch. Normally after...

    gksym077 If the power goes out for longer then 1 to 1 1/2 hours your chance of hatching is very low or non existent. Because, if it were done naturally, the hen would only leave for 1 to 1 1/2 hours tops and always return. Otherwise the eggs can get way too cold and they can die. On a rare...

    BRA incubator!

    If the air cell is too small it means you have too high of a humidity. You can put a piece of paper towel or some sort of cloth next to it to make sure that it doesn't get too much humidity.

    Can You Tell Me What These Are?

    They are bantams, that I know. I got them on March 25th. So they might be 7 or 8 days old. The tricky part is that they were labled mixed bantams! So I am clueless ^-^ They are almost 100% beautiful orangish red all over with a little bit of brown. And on their back is a semi stark contrast...
