    I set my eggs on good friday.
    [​IMG]. then the hard part the wait:/ , Not being able to wait any longer the five day Candle .
    .[​IMG]. You cant just make out the dark spot in the pic. but I can see veining in all 6 eggs that i candled
    .[​IMG]. Day 20 , I think 15 eggs hatched by the time I went to sleep . Day 21 the rest of my eggs hatched . 27 out of 28 . I thought I had a perfect hatch but , then found one egg that didnt hatch. Today my 9 yr. daughter and I moved them all from bator to brooder , she counted and dipped there beaks as she put them In what a good little Chick helper [​IMG].
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]. This was the last chick and she got stuck in her shell I think she started from the wrong end of egg and after seeing her wing and part of her back , pushed out of egg, I wanted to help her so bad but i just let her be. I decided that when I moved all the chicks the next day I would try to help her get free of the shell . She was still stuck this morning with no improvement so I removed the shell as she was still alive. She seems to be doing well.




    Have a blessed Day And Happy Hatching [​IMG]
