I am thrilled to have 16 adorable chicks hatch on Sunday and Monday. However, I had quite a few eggs that have fully formed chicks that die. I opened some eggs and they look fine, yolk sac absorbed but they never pipped. Why did this happen. I am getting about a 50% hatch rate with well formed chicks that never hatch. Sometimes I have to help a chick out of the egg, I lost one from not intervening. My new fuzzy butts are so sweet! I will post pics when photobucket is back up!!
