    did i do the right thing...

    i get the feeling that i did the right thing too late, or the wrong thing all together. so either way i feel guilty.. i know people say dont help a chick hatch, but i couldnt stand to sit there and watch the poor thing drown. it had pipped around 6 last night, and today was still trying, but it...

    is my chick ok??

    one just popped out of the egg and has a red bulb on its stomach. i think its just the rest of the yolk that wasnt absorbed, will it eventually absorb and be ok?

    we did this in our animal science class last year to about 20 eggs that didnt hatch. we got like 4 that looked like yours in the picture, 4 almost full grown chicks that had died before they hatched, and then about 8 that were like barely there blobs, and the rest were non-fertilized. pretty...

    broody hen? no place to seperate her? here is an idea :)

    some hens will sometimes want to get in the same nest with the broody hen, which could result in cracked eggs and smothering. plus the slimey stuff that comes out with a 'fresh egg' from another hen can get on the developing eggs and cause issues. also some hens, expecially first time broodies...

    broody hen? no place to seperate her? here is an idea :)

    so, my hen went broody about 2 weeks ago and i didnt have a seperate coop or place available to seperate her, plus i thought she would be more likely to stay happy and comfortable in her regular coop. so this is what i made: it has a solid wooden top and front piece. and then the bottom is...

    ahhhh! first hatch happening now!

    omg, i dont know exactly what to expect. if one chick hatches and moves another egg that has already pipped, whats the outcome? is the other pipped egg going to die? i would feel horrible! also, how long till i can take them all out, iv heard 48 hours is fine? is this true?

    pullet eggs

    all of them are fairly sized and fertile when i crack them open. they are slightly smaller than regular eggs. is it worth a shot, or should i wait a few more weeks? they have been laying for about 3 1/2 weeks, but im chompin at the bit to set some! so excited!

    What is a "straight run"?

    out of 10 strait run chicks, i had 7 hens which worked out perfectly. saddly though, one of my hens died at a few weeks.
