Just a warning to all new hatchers- nobody will tell you this so I want to warn you about home hatching. There will come a time when you will have to deal with lame chics. You will have to make a decision whether they can lead a normal life or not and must be put down. I've processed many chickens for my family to eat but it never gets easier having to put down a 5 day old lame chic. It's a terrible terrible position that would put ourselves in but also very rewarding. So just keep that in mind when you set some eggs to incubate.
