    We had 10 hatch yesterday.Lost one...[​IMG] .13 so far.10 more to go.
    One of our Hamburgs hatched,its so tiny.I had to put it by itself because it kept getting stepped one by the others.
    One of the Americanas wasn't doing well.Just layed there on its side most of the day yesterday.
    I kept taking a Q-tip and dipping it in water and letting the chick drink water off of it last night.I totally expected it to be dead this morning but to my amazement it was up walking around with the others. It's a TUFFY. If it hangs in there that what we will name it...lol.[​IMG]
