So an update this baby chick is beautiful an perfect full of energy my children named it rocky lol. But something wierd I noticed I have a silkie possibly crossed but not sure it has 4 toes on one side 5 on the other. The rest I have are mostly barnyard mixes. My baby chick was born with 5 toes...
Thank you so much for your help. I'm sure I'm just stressing it to much.. I don't see the yawning anymore just the tip of the beak at times now. I understand there so tired I would be too just want it to be born so I can stop worrying. Thanks again.
Still nothing :( 24 hours later since the first pip looks like the inner part of shell is kinda dry but I could be wrong as I don't know. I can still see it's beak an it pokes it out hole off an on but not working on unzipping yet. Looks so tired :( I feel so bad for it.
At the moment yes it's the only egg as the ones that were incubated with this one turned out infertile. I will have a few more hatch Sunday. Yes temp is measured with 3 thermometers including two temps an humidity ones an a zoomed temp one.
An incubator thanks I really appreciate your help. First time incubating chicken eggs so it's scary and stressful an personally would rather not try to help it hatch. But will follow steps when I have too so I can save a chick.
Help what am I doing wrong :( feel so helpless my chick pipped 22 hours ago an still hasn't unzipped my incubator has been steady at 65% humidity now that I added a bit of water threw a filling hole 99.5 consistant temp. Still moving in egg I see it's beak moving. What do I do next? Thanks for...
Thanks sadly it's only one today as the ones incubated with this one were infertile. I have a few more on day 18 today at least it won't be lonley long. What's the best and safest way to keep a steady humidity at this stage? Thanks for all the help
So my egg has pipped the problem is my incubator is at only 56% I'm new to all this and it's definitely been all over the place with reading about this issue.. please if someone as input I'd truly appreciate it I just want my baby to be safe an born healthy
I will I'm excited first time incubating chicken eggs. I'm a reptile breeder so much of a difference with 21 vs 64 days an turning of the eggs thank god for an egg Turner LoL. It's been a good learning experience though.
