    How to keep newly hatched chicks from rolling the unhatched eggs???

    My last chick hatch I came across the problem of the other unhatched chicks being rolled around and tangled in their partially absorbed yolks. I opened a dead egg and found it totally suffocated with the yolk completely around it's neck. What can I do to prevent that with my current hatch?

    Hatching a quail egg in my bra

    So this is crazy, but I've seen on here that it can work, so here goes nothing. My incubator has been a little inconsistent the first day of having eggs in it. My infrared thermometer read egg temperatures ranging from 98 to 102.2 degrees F, and I have more eggs coming in a few days. So...
