    So I finally have a final count on hatched eggs:

    I have 9 birds. I had 10 but one was deformed which I posted a picture on here :


    (If anybody know what that is would be appreciated)

    I have 7 in the brooder box, and 2 left in the incubator since 1 is still a bit wet and small so I left a friend in their with him. I will be adding them later today.

    Here's a pic. I think i have 4 RIR and the rest Leghorns since 4 are golden brown instead of just plain yellow but i Could be wrong about the breeds:


    I am on my way to CVS to buy newspapers (my brother got engaged so they put it in the paper). I am also getting hand warmers to put under the fleece to make it warmer since the light is not really helping. I have a small heater that I have had on but it just made the side of the box hot so I hold it up to put in warm air. I also have the top on the other side and have 2 boxes of food and 1 water with rocks in it so i don't have any suicidal chicks. lol.

    I also have a heating pad under the cage itself but i don't think its helping. i might change out the pine wood and just put dog pee pee pads in.
