    Buff orp, I put my hand in the bator to move it to the brooder and it ran right in. Seems to like it in the brooder better than the bator. Is drinking a bit but doesn't seem to want food. It sure likes the screw head that holds the heat lamp. Keeps pecking at it. What a great thrill. John

    How many eggs did you have in your bater? I only had one lone survivor as well. One hatched on its own, I had to help the other, and it died four days later

    14 to start with. All fertile but died in the process. Temps and humidity held good. I don't have an answer on what happened. I wish I knew. I would like to try again with more success. John

    [​IMG] Contratulations on the chick! Maybe find it a feather duster or stuffed animal for company.

    What a little cutie. Sad the others didn't hatch. But what a survivor this one must be if it defied the odds that killed the rest. Make it your personal pet.

    Cute little chick. Maybe you need to buy some buddies for him/her. Are those marbles I see in the water container?
