    Looks like it's only going to be 4 bantams out of the 7 eggs I set :(
    One started pipping on Monday night has passed away in the shell :(
    The other 2 looks like they are quitters as well :(
    Oh well 4 are better than nothing I suppose :(

    Thanks Sam. Thor is 53kg and Zeus is 37kg. I use the 25kg to 40kg for Zeus and the 40kg to 60kg for Thor. Our vet said maybe he was becoming immune to the brand I was using... she really wasn't sure though so I am switching to another brand she recommended, Hopefully it will turn up in the mail today. Speaking of our vet. I just had to post this pic she sent me of thor when he was in the vets the other day. Apparently Everyone there was in love with him and wanted to cheer him up when he was looking so sad. [​IMG]
    You gotta love the humor of our country town vets lol.

    I hate it when they don't hatch, it all just seems so futile. But at least you have some chicks, best to look at the bright side of life, bedoomp, bedoomp bedoomp..........
