We talked about the different options on getting them, and we settled on building our own incubator and hatching eggs. I thought that building an incubator would be a way to introduce engineering to my...

    Twin Chickens?

    This is my third batch of eggs and I am noticing one with two distinct spots on it. Is this by chance a double yolk/ twin egg?

    Does ventilation in an incubator matter?

    Hey everyone. I just got a new incubator which needs water to be added every few days. However, I have a country house that I go to 4 days a week.

    No window in the incubator

    Ok so this is my first time incubating. I bought a local homemade still air semi-automatic incubator out of a plastic box.

    Should I remove the hatched chick from the incubator?

    Hey. Just hatched a baby silkie chicken. He keeps knocking over the eggs that haven't even started to hatch and he is trying to jump over the wall that protects him from falling into the water compartment. He hatched yesterday at night and he is not completely dry yet but I was thinking of...
