Anyway after I successfully moved the 3 newbie chicks to ther small brooder with the 4 born on the 27th, I went back to move the eggs into a better area in the incubator and try and...

    Broody Hen to hatch an egg

    So I just recently had one of my hens raised from this past spring go broody. I decided that I wanted her to incubate one of the eggs that another hen laid. She has been on it for about 14 days now. I have 2 concerns, one being that she is low in the pecking order and gets bullied out of her...

    Took Mama ducks hatching babies, will she be okay?

    Hi. So we were doing a natural matching nest with our khaki Campbell ducks. Mama is young, not even a year old. This nest was an accident we found her hiding in a bush with, so we went with it. Moved them to the duck house. Now it’s hatching time. One hatched but when I checked on the progress I...

    Something is wrong with my newly hatched chick

    Hello, This baby hatched sometime today. When we went out to check, the baby was out of the egg and laying in front of my hen. It has not opened its eyes and is still in the "smashed in a egg" position. It has not gotten up and is still breathing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Blood in incubator

    I had a chick hatch last night with a bloody bottom. I'm guessing it hatched too early. It passed away in incubator a few hours later before drying off. There was blood all over the incubator. I quickly tried to open to remove chick and wipe some blood. Looks like some has dripped into the...

    Quail eggs. What am I doing wrong?!!!

    I put 96 quail eggs in the incubator, kept the temp at 99.5-100 degrees, humidity between 40-50% the first 20 days, then when we took them out of the automatic turner, we kept the humidity around 65-70%. On day 21 they started pipping (yay - even though it was 2 days early!) The ones that...

    Chick internally pipped yesterday, now no noise or external pip

    It’s day 22, my eggs are a bit delayed because of temperature fluctuations, but this morning (UK 9 am) I had two eggs cheeping, one has externally pipped, but the other one has gone quiet, with no external pip or movement, (5:30 pm). Should I intervene? I really need replies on this ASAP

    Only one chick surviving...

    I ordered BO eggs online from the only source I could find at the time. I needed them fast because I wanted to give them to my broody hen. However, I was taking her eggs away every day and she stopped brooding before the eggs arrived. Anyway, because of the urgency, I ordered eggs from across...

    Incubator temperature apparently at 35,5

    So the thermometer in my incubator is busted, it never goes higher than 35, but I’ve been using a secondary thermometer. I can’t keep it in the incubator 24/7 because it’s too awkward to position. I’ve been taking readings every other day, and up until yesterday, it had been reading around 37.5...

    Hatching Versus Purchasing

    I wasn't sure if this went with Hatching or Raising chicks, so please bear with me if this thread is wrongly placed. My turkens have never successfully hatched eggs before, so any addition to the flock was purchased as day-old chicks. My girl was broody and my roo was rather twitterpated this...

    Teaching my daughter! (First time I’ve hatched eggs in 10 years)

    Hi all, thanks for reading. My two year old daughter is desperate for hens and ducks, and for someone her age she is extremely inquisitive. She understands they come from and egg and grow - and even that in some cases they’re eaten! So this will be my first hatch in 10 years (I used to keep...
