    So my neices were over today and of course my own kids, its' day 21 for an hatch, we already had 3 hatch yesterday and 2 were pipped. Anyways in the process of the kids watching the eggs someone turned up the heat. I've got 2 live chicks one newly hatched and 1 from last night. the other two died as did the last one that had zipped.
    the 2 are "comatose" but breathing I have them in wet clothes trying to reduce their body temps?

    Just give the kid a scolding and warn them next time you will kill them, Then they will stay alive, LOL[​IMG].

    Eish, sorry for that one, just hope the other eggs did not dried up

    it was 30 minutes at the most but the temp was 120+....
    1 chick is kicking but not sure about the other
    I doubt the others survived I candled them and most looked very red
