Help! I do broodies NOT incubated chicks. But purchased a little giant a few months ago when I had an emergency. Needless to say nothing hatched. Twice since I given questionable eggs a shot - nothing ever came of it. Until now -- my bantam cochin abandoned three Silkie eggs (actually five, but I dropped two ). Anyway, once again I turned on the incubator and stuck them in NOT REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT THIS! First few hours only got temp up to about 97 degrees. Shifted knob slightly -- two hours later temp was close to 105 -- shifted knob down -- two hours later temp was about 100 -- I just left it (AND NEVER LOOKED BACK). They are in my husbands study and I just kind of forgot about them thinking if they hadn't died already I had definitely killed them. I'm in the bath tonight after desperately trying to find away to cover one of my duck runs to protect from the eagles and my husband pops his head in the door and says HEY! you've got a duckling next door. I was TOTALLY confused. "In the incubator -- in my study". GEEZ! It's alive?!! Yeah it's just coming out of the shell. OMG!!!! "A duckling" my husband says - what does he know? It's a chick. WHAT NOW?!! Do I take it out and put it under a heat lamp in 1/2 hour? REALLY! I NEED HELP GUYS! Geez, it's peeping away down there - I'm afraid I'm going to kill it. PLEEZ, somebody respond this time.
