In the Brooder
- May 24, 2017
This is my first time hatching eggs and I think one contains twins. The egg is under my silkie hen and I'm not exactly sure when it was laid but I think today is roughly day 12-14 (she was just so bound and determined to be a mama that I finally caved!) Both of the possible embryos seem very active and healthy. I understand the odds are against these babies, especially because I can't watch them in an incubator and anticipate when to step in to help on day 21. If these babies do survive the next few days, is there anything I can do to increase the odds of successfully hatching? If I ended up being able to assist, what do I even do? I'm so new at this that any advice is truly appreciated!
