    Won't fluff?

    They were all moved from the incubator to the brooder at about day 2. The temp in the bator was 99.8 and the humidity was enough to where there was condensation on the plastic/glass part. It did not say what percentage the humidity was.

    Won't fluff?

    Well, they are all just kinda laying there, except the one that is already fluffed, but it sleeps too. So I cant really tell, the one with the weird legs cant open ites eyes but they arent stuck, if that makes sense? The other one just sleeps as well, but its legs are normal and can open its...

    Won't fluff?

    The lamp is just a regular brooder lamp, red, and if i move it any closer then they are too hot. Seems like they are fine with it because the one chick that is actually doing good seems warm enough.

    Won't fluff?

    How long does it usually take for a chick to "fluff up?" I had 6 large Cochins hatch and 1 of them fluffed completely overnight. It had hatched in the evening, then about 9 in the morning it was all fluffed. 3 other chicks hatched in the evening and night as well. They have been in the...

    Why do my hatchlings smell so bad?!

    Haha thats alright, all the eggs hatched already, and the unfertile one got thrown out on the ending of week 2. So there is no more eggs to be smelly. The chicks did not look like they were pooping lots, but it could be from inside the eggshell that they pooped in there maybe. Either way it...

    Why do my hatchlings smell so bad?!

    Im not sure why it smells so bad, I took most to all the egg shells out but the paper towel I put down was soaked and was a brownish color. Im not sure if "extra stuff" comes out of the egg when they hatch. But it just seems odd because one would think I would notice from past hatches.

    Why do my hatchlings smell so bad?!

    So I just had 4 chicks hatch around the same few hours, and they stink really bad like ammonia! I have hatched chicks before, usually as many as 15, but they never stunk. Why do these chicks stink so bad? I set up my larger incubator and put them in it once it warmed up, then I cleaned my 7 egg...

    Lavender Orpington gender?

    When could I put these guys and the rest of their flock in with my mature flock? I have 11 other 13 week olds, and my mature chickens are 1 1/2 to 7 years old. There is only 5 of them, 1 roo and 4 hens. I want to eventually move the babies in with them just so I can move my soon-to-be outdoor...

    Lavender Orpington gender?

    This is my first time having orps, and am guessing they are pullets because I got them from a feed store but you can’t always believe them. They are 13 weeks, in my previous post I got the wrong age. They are younger than I thought. If I need to post again in a few weeks I will since I was told...
