    Hi there. Just want to say thank you to the person who posted instructions on helping chicks that are stuck in their shells, out.
    I did it last night (after one chick was trying all day). I used everything suggested and it worked well. Second one I helped might have been a bit early so we left it over night and helped this morning....all good! And third one, I helped this morning, was well and truly stuck and I did it no worries. I feel so confident now. They are all thriving and doing well. Yay.
    I think we have humidity issues with our very cheap incubator.
