    Well now 5 have hatched of the farmers eggs we got down the road and they are healthy and peeping and everything so I know my incubator did pretty well. Hehehe.

    But there was a Buff that piped and then did some zipping but there was so much blood and I did not know what to do. Anyway the baby just sat there breathing so I left him in. Well.........just now it took its last breath. [​IMG]
    I feel so sad.
    I guess I better be happy though, I have other chickes, but I really want a buff to hatch for my daughter. I think though for me its to much to ask. I probably need to be a professional.

    Anyway just wanted to tell everyone and put that out there. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

    everyone always says that there's probably a reason when they don't live . . . and that's probably true.
    it doesn't make it easier, i know, but . . .

    well, anyway, i'm so sorry. that must have been incredibly sad to have to watch.
    i hope you get a little buff chick very soon.

    take care.:aww
