    Issue with newly hatched Polish chicks

    Hello! I have bred silkie chickens for a few years and this month decided to hatch my first batch of polish eggs. Eggs were shipped from a breeder in Florida (I’m in NY). Eggs began hatching yesterday morning and finished up overnight last night. I had 3 in the brooder last night and they seemed...

    Need advice on lockdown

    In a situation like this they may pip at the pointy end and/or underneath the egg where you can’t see. Don’t be surprised if it happens and just handle each egg gently if you don’t see any pips. Those pips may be hiding in a weird spot.

    Helped hatch a duckling now I need some help

    You can just leave it and it will usually be gone in a day or two. Or you can take a warm, wet q-tip and try to loosen it up a little. But don’t worry, it will go away. Glad it’s doing good!

    Hands on hatching and help

    You have to do what your comfortable with and be comfortable with whatever the results may be. I hatch batches of ducks and chickens year round. And each year I gain more & more experience and do things slightly different based on cumulative results. This year I’ve hatched quite a few batches of...

    SHOULD I HELP THIS CHICK HATCH???

    Can you take a pic? If the chick had already started zipping there will not be any risk of blood. Honestly, it’s been way to long.

    SHOULD I HELP THIS CHICK HATCH???

    Yes, help it. Once a chick starts to upzip it is ready to hatch. The zipping process should not take longer then an hour. It may be positioned wrong or stuck. Just help by separating the rest of the shell where it already started zipping. It may be to tired to continue. Once they start zipping...

    EMERGENCY PLEASE HELP!!!! i think my baby duckling is dying

    I agree, I don’t think that looks like the yolk sac. But I haven’t had a lot of experience with unabsorbed yolk. And the 2 times I did it resolved within a couple hours. I’ll post a before & after pic of one of them. As for the clicking sound I did have one chick that had that problem because it...

    Shrink wrapped chick What else can I do? HELP

    Great job getting them out safely!!!

    HELP!!!! I only have two days to figure it all out before lockdown!!!

    Can you post some pics? I know we hear the term “shrinkwrapped” a lot but it’s actually pretty uncommon and often confused with the natural way the membrane forms to the baby at hatch time. I would put the one duckling that hatch with the yolk unabsorbed in a cup or some kind of dish so he can’t...

    Shrink wrapped chick What else can I do? HELP

    I wouldn’t wrap them with a wet paper towel, it can actually chill the egg. I know that “shrinkwrapped” is a term used a lot but it’s actually pretty uncommon and very often mistaken for the natural way the membrane forms to the chick during hatch. Can you please post a pic?

    First hatch

    Yeah, I would say that that egg does not look good. There shouldn’t be that color fluid oozing out.

    HELP!!!! I only have two days to figure it all out before lockdown!!!

    You have to get a pic!! I am not exactly sure what you are talking about. You think you see an internal pip in the aircell but an external pip at the pointy end?? Someone else thought the same thing but I think it was another body part pushing into the aircell. Is it possible it’s not really an...
