    I have 2 hatched last night and 2 more pipped and another 1 pipped in the wrong position (right in the middle of the egg) out of 11.. I'm feeling worried. Its hard to see in the bator now as the humidity from the 2 hatched ones drying out as fogged the window.

    Congrats on all the new chickies!
    Raven I had one pip the wrong end a few days ago but it made it out just fine. Just watch and see if it makes progress. I've got 4 salmon faverolles eggs that had saddle air cells. I'm afraid they're all going to pip on the bottom Or something. Chick hatching is stressful! But I love the little peeps![​IMG]

    Very cute!! What kind of chicken is this? I'm fairly new and still learning about all the different breeds.

    Thanks so much! Bernadine, it's a cross between a Bielefelder rooster and a light brahma hen. You can't see it well in the picture but it appears to have inherited the cute fuzzy legs from its mom [​IMG]

    4 hatched, 4 zipping and 3 with nothing visible happening. When the zippers hatch and dry out later should I move the chicks to the brooder and candle the last 3 for signs of movement? I won't open while there are pippers/zippers in case I shrink wrap them and I know the chicks are fine in there for a few days. Leave them all alone another 24 hours? Its day 22 and the first chick hatched 20 hours ago.. I'm loving all the chirping coming from the bator [​IMG]

    Sorry haven't posted in this thread before these guys hatched on the 5th so yeah.So got I some good news and some bad again one of the goslings died don't no how but it was fine the day before then went to check on them that night and he was dead in the nest box so yeah down no how couldn't feel any breaks so could've just been a freak accident. Anyway no more bad news the little gosling that had that swollen foot is fine now he is strong and walking so all good. Another thing is that one of my friends want a pair of geese for next year so I am giving the radar and bear so then I will have clare flapper and Mr Hiss so yeah will be able to keep some of the goslings from this years hatch yayaayyay so happy but sad at the same time can watch them grow all over again so yeah but also sad that I have to get rid of radar because he is far to aggressive towards my chickens and Hiss doesn't care as long as they don't get near the goslings he is in a good mood. So will keep updated but here are some pics of the older gosling with the younger goslings in the backyard with the geese.But you can tell the difference between a 2 week old gosling and 3 day old

    So on day 9 swell for my little silver lace wyandotte hen and have candled all of the eggs yay candled for the first time and for what I can see all are alive all were moving inside of the eggs and lot of veins so excited she is going to be such a good mum. But I am hoping for another broody to hurry up because I have 8 orpington eggs and 4 plymouth eggs that I need to hatch so fingers cross but maggie my older sussex silkie mix is showing signs as she was in the nest box all day yesterday and same for the day before so fingers crossed I guess
