Hello everyone!! I’m hatching chicks for the first time. I already have a flock, but I ordered 10 Rhode Island Reds and 4 Easter Eggers off of my pet chicken. We are just finishing up Day 23, and I’ve only had 2 Rhode Island Reds and 1 Easter Egger hatch. I am beginning to worry a little about the remaining 11. (If you can tell we when they will hatch/when to just call them duds I would greatly appreciate it!) Anyways, one of my Rhode Island Reds is about 36 hours old, it isn’t completely dry still and it has curled toes on one foot. I went ahead and put her in the brooder because she’s just damp and I think she needs some nourishment/water. The other two are 2 days old and are doin great!! They are also in the brooder. Thanks for your feedback!!
