Day 19 ... and I have a pipped chick! What? I only put them into lockdown 12 hours ago. Does this point to issues later on?

Wry neck baby is doing a lot better. Head only flips back for a brief moment then he corrects it. He can eat without me supporting his head now although cant drink without support as he slams face first into food and water

I don't know if that was rye neck or not, but he was friendly grew up had normal babies. But still bobbled his head.

The call of the eggs is too strong.
I have some broody hens, so I gave them the 6 eggs up front. I candled the carton, these 6 had good air cells, but are still probably a week old from a health food store, but the farm is local. The hens (2) both on the same nest, took to the eggs, but it got cold last night so I put them in incubator. due 19th. The 3 to the back are from my hens, just testing fertility. May be doe 21st. (posting in this thread since it is still Oct.) Nest week or so I may have 12 from Alabama.
