    [​IMG]My very first chick to hatch and it died/bled out. I gave no assistance but I don't really now what went wrong?
    2/1/12 was the hatch date and it piped on the 1/30, and late last night it pop-ed out of its shell and it abdomen wasn't done absorbing the yoke. Did I do something wrong to make it hatch to early or just a freak of mother-nature. The later I can totally accept and the first I never want to repeat if I can help it.

    Please give me info from anyone,

    Thank you
