    Just thought I would share this with you all!! After a first batch of eggs where no chicks hatched but 8 grew into full sized chicks I tried again to learn that my incubator would not reach the right temp, wrapped it in towels moved it to a warmer place etc, came to hatch day, 2 eggs were. fertile one pipped and began to hatch.... But died half way through [​IMG] the other one pipped and nothing happened for ages I could hear it cheeping and I know you shouldn't but I couldn't
    bear[​IMG] to see another die so I carefully took it's shell off a bit an hour later it was still struggling so I took the whole shell off, I didn't think it would make it through the night but 40 hours later here is Elsa the chick running around her brooder!! (We don't know if it's a girl, my daughter chose the name) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
