    Anyone? What do I do to treat this thing. How should I get the puss out?

    What is this weird abscess thing?!

    I have a 10 week old pullet that has never seemed right to me. She’s always been way smaller than the others. Her sisters are 3 times her size now. She always stayed closer to the heating element and doesn’t have the same energy level. She also walks a little bit like a penguin. I’m not sure if...

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    I plan to carry on with it since I’ve started and I feel like it provides some good information since candleing the Marans eggs is proving challenging. I just don’t know where to go with the info it provides since one group is loosing too much and the other too little. 😅 Tomorrow is day 7 and I...

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    I’m actually delicately weighing each one and then totaling the groups. 😅 Definitely time consuming.

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    Thank you for sharing with me. Sorry to hear you went through that! So it sounds like it would be better to have the air cell a little too big than too small. I have my humidity down to 25 or so now. I don’t want my Ameraucanas and OEs to loose too much but I guess that’s better than the Marans...

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    I can’t see in the Marans eggs. They are way too dark brown. And the 3 Olive Eggs are not super easy to see in either. I can check the 5 blue eggs though and traced their air cell on day 1 and will def do it again and 7, etc. Thanks for the pic!

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    Oh gosh now I just did the formula for my non Marans eggs (Ameraucanas and OEs) and they’ve lost too much weight. What do I do?!?! Here’s my #s for this group. Day 1 total 14.41oz Day 4 total 13.92oz Goal at end 12.53 Goal/ day .089 Goal for day 4: .356 Actual loss: .49

    Ah I hope mine will be okay. I’m going to stop adding water to the incubator for now.

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    Yep, additional humidity gauge that I keep in there is salt calibrated prior to this hatch. I’m using the incuview.

    Can someone help me with weighing eggs?

    Ok so I’m like realllly bad with numbers. Can someone help me figure out if this makes sense? It seems like my eggs aren’t losing near enough weight... I’m weighing my Marans separately. There are 7 of them. The total weight of them on day 1 was 14.68oz. Today is day 4 and the total weight of...

    Too Early for Feb Hatch-A-Long Thread??

    Eeek!!! It’s day 3 and I candled my ones from Gypsy Hen and alllll the ones I can see through are developing!!! Ahhhh I saw veins and everything! Wow. What a trip for a first timer. All 5 Ameraucanas are developing, all 3 F2-3 Olive Eggers, and I could see through the 2 lighter Marans eggs. So...

    What color would the offspring be from White Ameraucana x Black or Blue Birchen Marans?

    Holy smokes. I am so grateful for this wealth of knowledge. Thanks so much for sharing this with me. Currently trying to absorb it all haha. Oh, and very handy tip about the feather sexing. Thanks again.

    Funny how it always seems to work that way! Can’t wait to see which eggs of mine are developing. Im sooo hoping all 5 Ameraucanas are!

    What color would the offspring be from White Ameraucana x Black or Blue Birchen Marans?

    The title basically asks the question haha. If I cross a white Ameraucana Cockerel with Blue and Black Birchen Marans, what colors would the offspring be. I’ve tried searching and I’m still wrapping my head around the genetics behind white chickens. What about a Lavender Ameraucana x Blue or...

    I am not a pro with turning so I’ll let someone else chime in about that. I bet the babies will be fine in the incubator until Sunday. Can’t wait to see them!
