    Can You Shrink Wrap Before Internal Pip!?!?!?

    I've wondered the same thing. I'm worried that it may have happened this hatch for me as well. I've not had such a bad hatch before! But, I am wondering if a power outage that lasted several hours and brought the temp way down, and humidity hard to even recover going so low....I hope someone has...

    is 4 weeks too young?

    I put mine out very early, especially now when the weather is nice I can't have the dust and dirt, bc of athsma issues. But I have them in their own little cage. So that way nothing can get to them. And will wait about 6=8 wks before putting them in with the big hens. But, it seems no matter...

    Chick dust

    that is the only part of this i hate. is the mess, the smell, and the dust. UGH. other then that...they are great!! but it's the time between hatching and coop that can be the worst. I have got to the point where I only let them stay in the house a week or so. Then, I've made a dog cage...

    Thank you all so much! It was something that pushed the front gate open. so had to have been big. so we're going to padlock the gate now. Its sad that you only think of this stuff AFTER something like this happens. BUT...I'm over it now, and am moving forward. I hate that I hand raise...

    14 of my 15 died :(

    Quote: you mean "something sh!t happens..." lol it does...but it hits home when these are chicks you raised from eggs....I helped some of these hatch, and helped they grow. If i'd just went and bough 15 birds that were laying, it might be different. But, these lil suckers thought I was...
