    Hi :welcome Mary

    Glad you could join us here! Sorry to hear you lost one of your babies :hugs Incubating and hatching sure can be harsh but then again it's so rewarding and exciting too. It really is everything rolled into one. Here is a great article to check out ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101

    It has all the information needed on incubating and hatching eggs. Wishing you the very best of luck with your other eggs.

    Enjoy BYC :frow
