    Mother hen pecking the eyes of her chick

    Why would she do that to the baby chick. I ended up taken all the chicks away from her. Not really sure if that was a good idea or not. She is a first time mom. Any ideas of why she might have done this?

    What should the humity be?

    First attempt at incubating eggs!

    Quote: What section of Walmart are they in? I went looking for one, and I all I came up with was a digital thermometer with the humidity reading on it. Finally just went to a pet store and got one.

    Rocking eggs - Does it mean an early hatch?

    I have hatched bantam's and they have hatched early ever time. Listen for peeping too. I've had to lockdown after I noticed pips once and they all made it just fine. Good luck
