    Hey Amy, I sent you a private message so just in case you hadn't seen it I was wondering if you might be able to help me with my lockdown procedure. I started a thread called "HELP: First lockdown" a few minutes ago and since I know you have hatched a lot and don't have a "Never Open" mentality on lockdowns that you might be able to help.

    Yes, I'm glad your husband is feeling better. I've really been torn in needing to stay with him and wanting to stay with my eggs. But I hope they can take care of themselves for another 2 days.
    I even had to leave 5 chicks straight from bator outside with a momma heating pad. 1 was only an hour old. They are thriving. Wonderful idea (mamma heating pad). They even had to find the food and water on there own.
    I've been very blessed so far.

    Yes, it is surprising to see them grow with that kind of damage. And I could see what you described happening with these eggs too. What day was it near when it quit?

    I can't see any badge! Probably because I'm on a phone. Does it say it under your name? Congrats!

    Can you link your thread?

    Hey RubyNala, I'm kinda new to this and don't know how to link in a thread to this. The name of the thread though is "HELP!!! Just starting my first lockdown" if you want to search for that thread.

    It probably quit around day 10, but I left it in and pulled it on the day 14 candling when I was sure.

    Here's Ween's thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1093212/help-just-starting-my-first-lockdown

    Hello, I'm having some problems with my second hatching. My little chick pipped about 30 hours ago. I was going to help zip but there are still veins in the membrane. She is still moving and trying to get out, but not having much success.
