    After a long string of very bad luck on my hatches, I finally have things sorted out and I have lots of babies hatching out right now!!

    I just wanted to say YAY, and to say that when things are going horribly, and when you have an entire hatch that drowned after lockdown, leaving fully formed chicks dead in the shells, and when you feel like you are doing a horrible job.... Keep trying! Make notes and make changes. I know I will have more bad hatches in the future, but this one is going GREAT! [​IMG]

    I just hatched 6 lav orps in the past 2 days. One has a crossed beak, but seems to be doing well. 3 days ago I also hatched a crossed beak silkie. [​IMG] Not culling, will keep them here as pets.

    WHAT A STINK EYE! [​IMG]

    Your babies are precious, enjoy them. They don't stay cute and innocent for long.

    Congrats!
