In the Brooder
- Feb 22, 2010
Okay, so we have been incubating eggs, and one was due to hatch today. there was a small hole in one of the eggs and my classmates asked my teacher if we could hatch it ourselves. They elected me to do it. SO I made the hole larger, and took off some shell, peeled back some of the white membrane and basically did all the work the chick was supposed to do...there was blood, and I didn't know if there was supposed to be blood, there was a lot! Is it alright that we did this? He was "hatched" at 10:22AM. he moves a little bit, can raise his head and move his legs, but he hasn't gotten up yet. He is still attached to the chord to the egg. Is he gonna be alright? His name is Wilbur.
