No they shouldnt hurt them, I take the hatched chicks out when they are about half dry !!!! Alot of people area agaist that, but ive never had a prob !!! They dry quicker in the brooder under a heat lamp..... That stops the chicks from banging the other eggs !!!!
I just cant believe this!! The last dark brown egg has pipped too but nothing from the blue one yet. I ended up moving my 4 from the 1st hatch to a bigger brooder and moved the 5 that hatched last night to the smaller brooder. It seems to have caused noone any harm! So glad I did it!! Thanks everyone. They are all soo adorable!
I have a veritable rainbow of little fuzzy butts!!
When I started this I figured if I got acouple or so that would be more than I could ask for with my total lack of experience. I owe it all to this site!! Thanks one and all!!
My DD and I were determined to catch them hatching last night so she set her alarm for 2, 4 and 6am and I set mine for 1, 3 and 5 am and we missed every one of them hatching!!
Hows that for luck so Pics will have to wait till tomorrow cuz I gotta sleep! I'll probably be up for hours anyway cuz I could watch these guys endlessly!! They are sooo friendly!
