In the Brooder
- Jan 15, 2016
We have only 3 chicks from 8 fertilized eggs. They all looked good when candled at day 7,14 & 18. The first chick that hatched ran all over the incubator, rolling and spinning the other eggs. The 2 that had already pipped hatched just fine. I'm wondering if the rambunctious chick contributed to the other 5 not pipping. Should I have removed that first chick before it pushed around the other eggs? I was nervious to open the incubator during lockdown.
