    [​IMG] The egg I thought had been chilled to death actually hatched...after I put 6 more eggs under my broody Wyandotte! I don't have an incubator. Will she continue to set those eggs even with a baby fuzzy running around? Any suggestions?

    I would take that baby chick away from her until the others hatch...

    That would prolly be the best thing to do. How long does the others have?

    The eggs are on day 6, so they've got 15 days left to hatch. I guess I'll get the little guy out of there and set him up with his own "room" for now. [​IMG]
