We had the 6 free eggs we got from the EE's we bought that had been with a roo prior to purchase. We got those by taking 2 days of laid eggs and giving them to our broody duck. She patiently sat on them for 22 days. We lost 1 egg at day 8/9. Not sure what happened. 5 left. Thursday was day 21 for 2 of them. Nothing. Woke up Friday morning to 1 fluffy chick, 1 smothered wet, barely made it out of egg chick that was dead. Our plan was to remove chicks to be raised in a brooder to be safe from our flock of chickens and ducks plus the goats that share the pen. And we could imprint on them. Quickly got that ready, transferred the 1 chick, disposed of the dead chick. Later that morning, our flock killed another chick before we found it. 2 eggs left. We put them in the brooder and are hoping for the best but I don't think anything will happen..... We didnt turn them, picked them up and laid them same side up, etc. in brooder. We have the temp right, we have humidity in there, we have the 1 chick plus we grabbed another chick for it to have a friend at the feed store so it wasn't alone. And yet they sit..... they were laid on July 19 and 20. We have 1 egg left from each date(I dated them when they were laid) We are giving them until Monday night, then will dispose. That is 3-4 days past due date for them. *sigh I don't think we will be doing fertilized eggs again, it is to heart-breaking. We love the chicks and that is fun and I was REALLY hoping to get to see an egg hatch and watch a chick come out and for my boys to see that but finding a dead chick and then watching your flock flip around a chick they were killing.....UGH! Is there anything else we can or should do?
