Yeah few things are more distressing than doing and eggtopsy only to find that the chick is alive but have it die in your hands.
Ok. A total of 12 so far. 1 dead in shell. That makes 13/30 accounted for. Another 17 to go. Here's hoping I have at least another 10 or so out of it. Temp got crazy for a few today while I was out. No idea how long or bad.
Yes, I did about three and a half years ago. I had 10 and had them under the Ecoglow 20. They did great. It was in July and they feathered quickly. I kept a small cardboard box in their crate after I removed the plate-one small side cut completely off and one half of the long side of the box cut out. They liked to get in the box whenever anyone came up to the crate....I think they felt safe in there....don't know if that had anything to do with the brooder plate or not. I don't have any pictures....except this one on my granddaughter looking at them after they moved outside. You can see the cardboard box in the lower left but it doesn't show the openings.
Ugh I don't think I will have anything to hatch for the hatch along... I will try, but I don't know if it will happen. The Icelandic chickens aren't laying so she won't be able to send me some til Atleast e me of March, and the only thing I will have are showgirls, which isn't bad, but not everything I wanted... Sadly..
So I got a wonderful surprise today when I checked on the BSPW and the Sapphire. Tizzy the Sapphire laid her first egg! If fertile that means it is the BSPW roo. Soooo I think it is just going to fall into the bator.
Nice egg! Congrats!
Whats a BSPW?
So Sorry Nate
