    This is awful.

    I'm in day 3 of my first ever lockdown and want to save it, but I jeopardize the unhatched eggs.

    What do I do? [​IMG]

    Suggestions? I think it's a goner if I they keep pecking. [​IMG]

    Take the bloody chick out immediatly. Put Him/her in a brooder with a heat lamp.

    Throw a damp wash rag in the incubator after you get him out to up the humidity more.
