    Hi, it's day 20 for my chicks in the incubator and two have started cracking. One of them cracked sometime yesterday morning a little bit and has not had much improvement since then. Is this normal? Should I help it? If so how? I've only done ducks in the past and this never happened before . Thank you

    We're new to incubation too. For a faster response post this question in the hatch along thread. There are a lot of experienced folks on there all the time who are happy to help. Seriously, those folks don't sleep over there. Lol

    I've never hatched any, so can't be of much use. Please put " hatching information," in the search box - it should come up with articles for you to read. As to posting on any thread, is the same way you posted hear. Just pick a thread that interests you.
