Well my order from Ideal came this morning!!!
All of the chicks are happy, healthy and I must say adorable! They were a little weak when they arrived but I suspect that was just from the heat. They are now running around and peeping their little heads off. Haven't lost one yet and I don't think I will. Just had to share the news!

Here are the babies:

"Oh look it's food!"


"Can we come in???"

hey can any of you tell me if I should help this chick out of its egg? I had one hatch last night and this other egg has been moving around a lot the last couple days. I can hear it peeping but it has not made any holes or cracks in the shell! can any one tell me what I should do? I also have 5 other eggs in the bator but have not seen any movement in them at all.

For the Newbie regarding the hatching question - Hope you posted about it on the incubation.hatching area.

Quote:Thanks! I ordered 5 Silkies of all varieties, 2 Cochins one buff and one barred, and 3 speckled sussex. They added 6 barred rock "males for warmth" though. All of the chicks are doing really well considering the heat. I knew it would be a risk ordering this late but they are doing great!
