So I have two EE, my rooster is a pure Ameraucana blue. I have 3 blue hens and one splash.
First time ever hatching these.
I'm having a hard time distinguishing some of the Ameraucanas from the EE. They are 3 days old.
I removed the others and moved them to the brooder. They were picking at his butt and I think they were hurting him. He seems lonely now. I thimmed the thinnest part as it was attached to his leg. I feel bad leaving it alone in the incubator.
Is that his intestines, does he have a chance? I...
I had my first hatchling and he's doing a great job, others started poking holes from inside. This one has been like this for hours. Is it normal? I totally missed the first one being born.
How long does it take after they poke the first little hole?
I'm not good at the terminology of pipping...
I wasn't expecting this to happen until tomorrow, but I have my first ever baby chick just hatch! How long do I keep him in the incubator? Do I waste for the others? What do I do?
I am so excited! My first baby on mother's day!
No, I candled them a couple of times but I'm not sure what I'm looking at.
I removed one about a week ago that didn't seem to have anything inside, and when I cracked it, there was an embryo. :(
I am noticing some of the eggs I can't see through.
Hello, today my incubator says there are 5 days to hatching. Some of the eggs I can't see anything in them.
If I am reading instructions correctly at day 18, I need to remove the turner and increase humidity to about 70-75%.
Is s the development you see consistent with about day 16?
I have a drama queen who refuses to leave the nest box, she hogs it and tries to reach down and put other hens eggs under her. Since it's an incline they sometimes crack a little from her trying to pull them up.
I placed some nesting material in one of the not so popular nest boxes with about 4...
Hi, I have some pure ameraucana eggs, ND I'm fi ding hard to see through when I candle. Others are easier. Is it because they are blue all the way through?
1st hatch and I pulled out a few.
What do you think about these ones? It says 5 days left, what should I be looking for?
I candles and some are definitely consistent with growth I've seen in charts. I pulled out a couple I didn't see any activity. The side that's down was definitely darker. I marked them and will check again in few days.
Does blood ring form vertically as well as horizontal?
I opened the...
Thanks so much! I live in hot humid Florida and I just realized the 360 can handle more water than I thought, also figured out how to adjust with the little window, so humidity should be good from here on out. I turned the turner on and I candled one of the eggs. Looks like a good embryo. I'm...
Hi everyone, I am new and this is my first time incubating. I have the nurture right 360 and just realized that the turner wasn't plugged in.
What should I do? Is this batch pretty much doomed?
Also, what happens if humidity drops below the 50% while I'm at work? I've gotten home to find it...
