I've bought a lot of eggs and I've learned information along the way. I've been seeing several people post questions about incubating shipped eggs and...

    My eggs are late

    I know that with incubation, eggs hatch on their own time. Mine are 24 hrs over due, that's not what worries me.The problem I'm having is that none of them are even wiggling, except for one. It has a small peep and wiggles very rarely. With this batch, I have a few eggs that have droplets of...

    Incubator question

    Hey everyone! I'm new to emu and I'm trying to source an incubator with an automatic egg turner. I really only need to hatch 2 (maybe 4 if possible) so would rather not go for a huge cabinet incubator. Thanks!!

    Ameraucana blue x lavender.. why or why not?

    So.. I’ve been scouring and still can’t find a clear answer.. I’ve raised chooks before but this will be our first attempt at breeding and I want to get it right.. Why is it that you don’t want to breed blue to lavender? Does it weaken genes? Is it just because of the colour they produce (if...

    Hatching Eggs

    I want to hatch eggs for showing birds this year. Last year I put 42 eggs in the incubator, got out about twelve chicks. I did an eggtopsy afterwards and found 15 chicks still in the eggs, fully developed. I later found out this had to do with humidity. I've got a couple questions. 1. How do I...

    Late Hatching Egg Viability and Genetics Question

    Hi all! I've had a Silkie sitting on a small clutch of 3 eggs for 3 weeks now. 2 of the eggs hatched (one last night, one the day before). I' don't think the last egg will hatch.

    Hatching quail eggs dilemma

    So it's my first time hatching coturnix quail eggs. They are already in incubator for 2 days and I read online that I'm supposed to have them pointy down until day 15. But apparently as a newbie, I did not. They kind of just lay on their side now and it's an automatic turn incubator. So I don't...

    Duckling mass death diagnostic

    Hello BYC, I hate to have to write this message out because I'm bordering on crying. 7/7 ducklings that made it to hatch have died shortly after hatching. Important information: *The eggs were from young birds, they had only been laying for a few months. They were small, to the point that...
