    Banamine. Cultivate a vet so he will feel secure in selling you banamine injections if you think you may have to do that again. You can give them baby aspirin too. Break one in half and give one half to each of them.

    That's what I thought. If you think there are live animals in there, why would you stab at them?

    I currently have Ameraucanas, Saipans, ducks, goose and Bantam Wyandotte eggs. I am so excited.

    My Saipans are due to hatch in 2 days. I have had bad luck with hatching Saipans so far.

    Because obviously they are zombie revanent piranha chickens that are going to chew through the box and swarm her to eat her eyeballs from her skull. They will find her ravaged rotting body slumped over the wheel of the wrecked and smoking mail truck.

    Ok so candled as well as I could, the little eggs air cells look good, though some look clear, and the big eggs the air cells look kinda small but it is also kind of hard to see through some because a bunch are green or darker brown. So we wait, none had any smells so all are still in

    If I can't see into the egg, I just leave it. Usually I get a chick. If not, I do a small peep hole in the top and if I discover it's dead, I toss it. I don't do this unless the egg is late hatching though. One of my 3/4 Ameraucana, 1/4 Marans lays such dark eggs it is always a mystery up until hatching time.

    Just put in 24 eggs. Also testing out my coolerbator with a lockdown for my turkey egg. So, I have 11 duck eggs and 3 NN eggs with a couple weeks to go, a turkey egg w 2 days to go, and 24 just added. Got 12 crested cream legbar eggs, 4 aloha eggs, 4 golden laced Wyandotte, and 4 buff Orpington eggs, though those may not hatch-using the buff Orpington eggs to test a new broody. (BTW others nothing to ruin a Friday like getting a call that your dogs are out of the yard and you are 2 hours away. Had to call a friend to go chase the twerps back to the yard. Must've left the gate unlatched. Least they're OK)
