    Hatching my first set of eggs and am freaking out. The first egg broke shell yesterday around 11am and still has not made any progress. 2nd egg broke around 11pm last night and has been much more active than the first one.
    First egg seems to have foam coming out of its little mouth but it doesn't appear to be a broken yolk sac. Any ideas on what it could be?

    Thanks

    G’Day from down under ErockNJ [​IMG] Welcome!

    I agree, the link Ken has given you is your best bet. Good luck!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
