In the Brooder
- Dec 19, 2011
I had 20 eggs in my incubator. Unfortunatly, being new, I staggered them. I have learned my lesson. Anyhoo...10 of the babies have hatched and most of them are dry.With them moving and running around, they are rolling the other eggs around and bumping them into each other. They also were pecking at one of the other chicks who had just pipped and had his little beak sticking out. I think this is why it went the whole 21 days, pipped, then died. I'm afraid if I open the bator to get them out, even quickly, I might cause damage to the rest of the eggs. I know I'm not supposed to open it, but I don't want this to happen to any other babies, and I need to feed the ones that are already out.
