    Maybe the humidity caused an early hatch

    6 chicks due yesterday, i would be delighted if only one hatched but it is looking less and less likely by the minute
    I bought a new rooster today though, my other guy is getting up there age wise, there's always next time though:)

    I have a homemade bator made from a styrofoam cooler. Walmart sells a thermometer/hygrometer for 8$ that's what I use
