    So far the only ones to hatch are mixed breed, one australorp-SS and one FBMC-SS.

    I feel really bad, too. But it had pipped the wrong end of the egg, and I have to remember that even assisting it still might not have survived. I broke away the top half of the shell, so now I'm trying to figure out if I can preserve if for like a biology class.

    Oh, good idea. I'll stick it in the freezer and call the school, either biology or maybe ag? And see if they want it.

    Anyone want to see a picture? It's pretty neat. Doesn't even look real.

    WARNING: PICTURE OF DEAD CHICK.






















    Pipped.
    [​IMG]

    After ~18 hours.
    [​IMG]

    After ~22 hours it had died, so I made a small opening.
    [​IMG]

    Larger opening. You can see the membrane shrink to it.

    Final results.

    One chick is australorp under speckled sussex roo, and one is French black copper marans under speckled sussex roo. None of the pure speckled sussex have hatched (yet).

    I would keep the nice one, because I have little kids.

    Looks like it still had some yolk to absorb ? and the egg looked round. eggs not shaped right will cause them to pip at the wrong end. I THINK that is what i am seeing. looked pretty wet. def. in the wrong position. Thanks for sharing.
