    so the 2 that hatched yesterday are now running around in a cardboard box an one of my daughters tedddies as a mum they are very loud very fast the black one which had a bit of blood when he hatched is fine still has a little yolk outside about the size of a pea but its not bothering him/her i am just keeping it clean and moist the gold/yellow one is fine no yolk left and having fun running around

    i still have the one egg that pip a large whole in the bator shouting away woundering were his friend have gone i had to move them as its small inside and they were panting i also moved the 3 remaning eggs back in there one pipped in my hand and the other two have cracks all over so fingers crossed for them they are now shouting away so hopefull the other egg wont e lonely

    then i have to go through it all again next week with my duckies [​IMG]

    Once in lockdown try and resist the urge to open and remove any hatchlings until the entire hatch is done. This helps keep the humidity up and stops them from shrink wrapping. The one with yolk still should be in the bator until it is absorbed, careful the other chicks don't peck at it.
