    I hatched out an Embden girl a week ago. None of the other eggs in that group hatched. I have two more eggs I'm hoping to hatch today or tomorrow. Once the new babies are sturdy can they be introduced to the week old or will she bully them? Any advice on how to introduce them without conflict?

    Yep. Just watch for bullying and give the new batch a day or two to make sure nobody gets trampled.

    I put them in a big plastic container with a divider down the middle to give them time to get used to each other. Currently, they are trying to peck each other's eyes out through the divider [​IMG] I really hope they start getting along. My third Embden pipped earlier today. It'll be a real pain to have to divide them up into 3 compartments because they will not get along.
