I'm so sick and tired of everything going wrong with my chickens. I've lost so many of my young ones lately. It's sooooo fustrating. After getting a 3/30 hatch, 2 trampled chicks, 2 squished chicks. Then my living chick that lived for weeks after getting squished and was my favorite finally died yesterday. After my last horrible hatch I started a new ones after coming up with ways to improve, and understand what happened. On day 18 I had 29/30 chicks living. But I had to go away for a few days to a government class. Well my mom was in charge with strict insructions, not to touch a thing. Well the humidity got up to 68% and she thought that was too high. SO She opened the bator several times. ALL DIED!!! Except one adorable EE chick. Cutest ever. I can't believe my mom could kill 28 chicks that were a day or two from hatching. I mean some even zipped and pipped! Well now that little EE had to go in with my other week older chicks. And it just isn't big enough to keep from getting trampled. And it won't eat very much, or drink much. And I'm getting worried. I tried sperating it, but it got scared, and I think it would stress it too much. So I just put another chick the smallest I had but it's still twice it's size. And I was trying to get the chick to drink, and something started falling and I had my hands full , but it was about to smush all my others. So I reached out to grab it. And the chick jumped out of my hands and fell on it's back while I was distracted. Now I feel terrible. And am scared it's going to die too now. Cause last time a chick was dropped a foot it died. Not to mention this chick was already not doing so well. And if it dies I will cry and cry. It is the cutest chick I ever seen. And it was the only one to make it. And I'm just not sure what to anymore. My poor babies. Life is just not fair to them.!! And now I am leaving on vacation in a few days. And I am soooo freaked to leave them all with someone else. Cause I know something will happen and I will loose some. And gah! I want to rip my hair out.
