Well my eggs are due the 8th. I have 3 old english game bantam eggs and 2 eggs that are get this: The mom is a cochin x salmon faverolle and the dad is a frizzle cochin. The babies in the past from this pair have turned out to be frizzled or straight feathered with heavily feathered legs, 5 toes, and beards. Here is the mom... And dad... I'm very exited about all these eggs hatching. I have one lone little old english game bantam chick who really needs a buddy. Sadly his batch of eggs didn't do well at hatching. What can I do this time to increase my hatch rate. With the last batch the chicks made it all the way to full size and then died in the shell after internally pipping. Only 2 hatched and sadly one of them died for no apparent reason on the second day of life.
