    Can I ask how much you can sell a rooster for at auction?

    Sorry to hear that SC. How are you doing today?

    We have had luck with using a shop vac to get most the water out and then renting some drying fans. You have to drape the carpet up on something like a buckets or back of chairs and let it dry all the way out.

    Sorry to hear about the mixed up eggs Rossfam.


    Final update on my hatch last week. 12 hatched out of 14 good eggs. One did expire already. It pipped externally and then dried out so we helped it out. It had curled feet. It died a day later. So we have 11 new chicks on the ground. I need to get a good pic of the group. 6 yellow, 5 Marans chick color (one died) and 1 grey chick patterned like a Marans. Interesting. And a few of them have feathered shanks.

    Of the eggs left I did candle them and one had internally pipped. Sad too, you could see the scratches on the inside of the egg where it failed to pip externally. I'm just not going to look or help anymore. I'm going full blue from now on. It sucks to have the kids see the curled footed chicks scream and then finally die.

    ETA: I think the two had issues from the temp drops.

    I consider it an OK hatch. I know it would have been better if my thermostat did not crap out. The old thermostat also had a degree swing of 3-4 degrees. I think that caused the curled feet. I have the new thermostat for the next hatch though.

    That's what I meant - despite your temp swings, you still had a lot of healthy chicks. Pretty good for the circumstances.

    Saw this on FB. I love ingenious ways of repurposing!

    OMG!!! I love it!!! I am going to have to do this.
    I feel so bad for you right now. I wish there was something that I could do to help you. I hate seeing people in pain. It brings out the compassionate part of me.
