    I've never shot a gun in my life, so I wouldn't be the one doing the shooting either!! Lol! I'd get my grandfather to come do it. He shoots all the predators on his property!

    What kind of death? Unless they are a large dark spot stuck to one side of the egg the problem is not likely to be turning. If you have tossed the eggs out of the bator I hope you just seeing them wrong.
    Good luck on getting your hen

    SC, would smack the crap out of me if I saw how I have to take care of these babies! They imprint on you and it's no joke!! They cry for me and if I leave the lid off (I had to make a lid out of scrap wood and hardware cloth for the brooder because they flew out at 5 days old) they fly over to the couch! Then they like to fly on my sons heads'. And they like to snuggle up in my hair and go to sleep. Every night they cry their heads off until I literally put them to bed. I gave them one of the baby's fleece blankets. I take them and wrap them up tight in the blanket and they go to sleep for the night and don't come out until they hear me making coffee in the morning. I feel bad. They are not like chicken chicks. They need a mother!

    Been a long time since I did any welding , though for some reason I was always far better with oxy than with arc, or TIG. Never did MIG.

    You are not unique in that. The 2 chicken chicks we hatched last time would cry if we both left the room until they about 3 weeks old, by which time they were spending all day with the flock.
