Our First Hatch of the Day http://youtu.be/vdeGjWxXBXI and here is a link to the hatch I assisted (that poor little one started to unzip, long before any others had even pipped...seems to be doing well in the brooder!!! But feel free to give advice/opinions on my assist. http://youtu.be/9TcoKm9D3MM Sooooo MY QUESTIONS ARE: This is my first batch of incubating eggs and I'm not sure when they need food and water. I know when I have ordered them from the hatcheries I gave it immediately, but I'm not sure they need it for the first 24 hours??? Also, anyone with genetics info, the mothers are Easter Eggers and the Father is a Blue Orpington...any guesses on what they might look like as adults?
