    If that was my cat, the chick would be dead. She tried to murder my baby quail yesterday. Wasn't happy when I picked her up by a back leg and deposited her far away from the brooder. Baby is safe and is now dubbed 'trooper' for having survived.

    So glad Trooper survived! The photo scared me, my cat would have gobbled up that chick.
    Yay! Congratulations

    My cat likes our chicks too. Or it could be the warm brooding area helps relieve his arthritis.

    Update this morning(10/7/2015) 5 of 7 hatched the other 2 have pipped and will hopefully be out this afternoon.Dark Cornish and Dark Cornish X chicks.

    OOOPS!!!Apparently I left a chick/egg in the incubator on day 18 good thing I checked before hand rolling the eggs. He was staring at me through the side window. So 6 of 8 eggs have hatched.

    [​IMG] All eight eggs hatched!
