    So I put 3 EE eggs in my 'bator along with 1 bantam egg that I was given. One EE egg wasn't fertile, another EE stopped developing on day 6-ish, and today when I candled the 2 eggs left, the last EE has also quit. All that I have left is the little bantam egg - due to hatch Wednesday. I have read here that it's not good to raise babies by themselves, so I'm sort of freaking out [​IMG] Now I'm going through our local paper to see if I can find a buddy for my baby [​IMG]

    Just had to share my frustration with someone [​IMG]

    Oh, so sorry to hear. If we lived near each other I'd give you a couple chicks! Hope your banty makes it.

    Thank you! Since school is out I will be spending as much time as possible with the little thing. I know it's not the same as having a chick-friend, but I'll do my best to keep him company [​IMG]
