    That's a good way to do it if you have a spare bator.

    Ok I zipped the shell, moistened the membrane then moved a bit of membrane and started to bleed. I have stopped, placed it in a warm moist towel and put in coolerbator.

  4. I think I would be looking for sticky chick before you start put the light on it .look at the inner membrane to see how drawn down it is give it a little more time. what's the humidity been for incubation and what is it now and somebody is a nurse so scrub up. a couple of pictures haven't posted any for a while [​IMG]

    I just left TSC, and just had to share the conversation with the sales girl. She overheard me talking with another guy about Ameraucanas. She said "we had those this year"
    :smack
    Then she said "We also had some of those that laid almost black eggs"
    I said "Black copper marans"
    "No"
    "Welsummers?"
    "No, it started with an A... Australorp! That was it!"
    :smack

    :lau

    :lau those poor salespeople rarely know what they're selling. When we got 12 ducklings last year, one I was told was a Pekin. I knew better. It was a blue Swedish, which is what j wanted anyway.

    I'm a nurse too, and have the greatest selection of forceps, iris scissors, hemostats, etc - even a selection of surgical steel pans. I spent most of my time in solid organ transplant, but when I worked infertility they were getting rid of a lot of old stuff from their procedure room. No need to ask how many OR towels I have.... [​IMG]or why all the rags around my house are blue.....
