    Yesaterday 2 pekin bantam chicks hatched on day 22. However, i checked the other 2 eggs in the bator and one has internally pipped but no external and the other one doesnt seem to be doing anything. Should i make an external pip to see if he needs help or is still ali9ve?

    I hate when that happens, I always try to look at the positive and be happy that I got any. I had tons of bad hatches, the worst being new and not knowing how to hatch. I am fortunate that if I only have one hatch, I can run down the road to the hatchery to get him friends. It will be okay. Don't get discouraged. Try, Try again. [​IMG] many of us were there at on time. I learned to let my broodies hatch my shipped eggs. They do so well. When all else fails hatch a boat load of your own eggs, expecting a few and then they all hatch [​IMG] Chin up, winter is upon us and bored, crazy chicken people, have a blast all winter long.

    Thankyou Michelle :) Sorry for the late reply. Haven't been on for a while :(

    Luckily someone not far from me had some chicks for sale so i brought 9 of those (couldnt help myself). Unfortunately 5 have died and i have no idea how/why as they all have evactly the same things like food water and heat. Hopefully the remaining 5 survive. I'll be so gutted if they don't.

    Thanks all for the comments :)
