    I have a question. I'm new to incubating and my first batch is hatching. I had 2 chicks hatch and was doing fine like chirping and stumbling around and stuff. Well I believe it was the 2nd chick that hatched out and within a few hrs later I checked on them and that one was dead.. can anyone tell what could of possibly happened to it

    G’Day from down under AmandaToole [​IMG] Welcome!

    I am sorry for your loss. I am also sorry that I have no incubator experience, only hatches under a broody hen. I recommend you try posting your question on this forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-hatching-eggs

    Good luck with the rest of the hatch.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
