    Serama eggs are extremely sensitive to temperature changes...especially shipped eggs . I tried two shipment of eggs with no success. I finally bought two lovely pair and have incubated every one of their eggs. Shifting from incubator to a hatcher means maintaining the same temperature in both. Still, I have only Five chicks from the parents.


    From pip, it can take up to a full 24 hours before the chick hatches. This depends on the vigor and genetics. It must get used to breathing oxygen, absorb the nutritious yolk, build body strength from manipulating around to zip, and finally pushing with its legs and feet to open the shell. Each stage requires a period of rest.

    Well went to feed horses this morning and checked on momma and what do you know I heard loud chirping when I looked she had 1 chick already then I saw at least 2-3 more so she had them last night and I had to go to work this morning so hoping everything will be good with them. I have 10 in all so that leaves 6-7 more to go. I'm so excited..[​IMG]

    Congrats to everyone with fluffy butts!! The 2 brinseas went into lock down last night and getting the humidity up and under control has been a struggle. The sponges go dry so quickly in those things!! I also set two dozen silkie and bantam Cochin eggs in the little giant on 8-31. There was a stinker that started to seep and it smelled up the whole house. Thought hubby was going to lose it [​IMG]
