Last year I brought home 21 chicks from rural king. Everything went great except I picked out 3/4 roos. Yummy mistake. This winter was okay except my roo got a frostbite place on his comb because he chose camping under the stars on a 15 deg night instead of the coop. By the end if winter I debeaked the right hen and stopped the feather picking I mistook for molting. Then I stupidly bought 2 new hens and everyone got what I assume was infectious bronchitis. That was 2 1/2 wks ago, I lost 2 including one this am and the E G G S are down to very infrequent. My friend lent me her older incubator for my first experience at hatching. The turner quit for about 4-5 days before I figured it out and fixed it. Yesterday after candling the heat went up to 110 for a few hours before I realized a piece fell off the heater. I've candled the eggs E G G S which should hatch Easter weekend. Only 3 empties but everything is pretty much to one side and I don't see any movement. Is this normal????? or have I killed them too??? Should I just go back to rural king and see how many roosters I can pick out this year????? Should I cull any chickens that still act sick??? Should I just have mercy on poultry kind and quit the business (after spending too much money and getting horribly addicted)!?!?!?!? okay who's the april fooler chaning E G G S to rooster???
