  1. I am sure there are some things that I should already have on hand for my soon to hatch eggs.....

    If anyone would tell me what they keep on hand for newly hatched chicks, I would really appreciate it !

    Thanks in advance

    Band-aids or adhesive tape in case they get spraddle leg. Otherwise, nothing! I had one hatch like that today and didn't have either so I used a twist tie.
