    We now have Seven chicks (five Silkies and two blue orp/??), after 3 were added last night [​IMG]

    The wet hatcher has died, as has the one who pipped and drew blood [​IMG]

    One pipper is just sitting there with her beak hanging out, peeping and breathing. I'm afraid she is going to end up like the other two. And one Silkie is rolling about trying to zip. If that one succeeds soon, I may go into help the other. Three eggs have yet to pip. I believe today is Day 22.

    Call me bad, but I couldn't watch two more die. They were a bit sticky but I don't think they were quite shrink wrapped. The Silkie is doing well, but the large brown egg (blue orp/???) doesn't seem to have much motivation. If they die, they die. But at least I know I've done more than I did with the other two who died [​IMG]
