Note to self: that thing that you think chicks won't do, they'll do it, all of them. So i built my incubator and ended up leaving a little gap between my wire basket and the wall. I thought nothing of it, till i realized that i had laided the thermometer down to read it easier...creating a little step, which they all promptly used to jump over the side, like so: i should have gotten an action shot of them jumping, but i was too shocked to take a picture. but here are some with the scaredy chick that didn't jump and some other chicks below: I was going to leave them all down there, until they got into the water pan, then i had to take all the eggs out along with the scaredy chick, remove the rack and pull the chicks out. Any chance i might have shrink wrapped some of the chicks? 1 just hatched out after i had done this, but another one looks like he might be stuck behind the membrane. When i took them out i put them in a Styrofoam egg carton and closed it, then i jacked up the humidity after i put them all in. heres a pic of the trouble some pip: opinions?
