    okay of 8 eggs, one didn't make it out. biggest chick i've ever seen so maybe it just was too big to do anything other than a little zip. had i been paying attention maybe i could have helped it. oh well these things happen. anyway 6 are fine and i'm waiting on one more egg but i don't think it's gonna do anything. these were shipped eggs so i am very pleased with them. i'll get some pics up later. they are so fluffy and cute.

    [​IMG] congratulations!

    I like your attitude, these things happen, yea they do. Better than trying to help and killing it by trying to help, then feeling responsible.

    I would love to see some pictures if you can.

    finally i have pics. one of the dark one came up missing during the night. the cats are in the interrogation room as i suspect they drug it through the chicken wire. gonna have to fix that problem or kick out the cats. they are always one step ahead of me. these were my wesummer/pendesenca mix eggs. i have four new chicks that hatched during the night and a turkey egg pipped plus one bantam that was part of some barnyard mix.
