I'm not having any luck. 1st - Last Saturday - I broke an egg open that has a developing chick in it. 2nd - Friday - One of the chicks under my brooding hen hatches out but dies while it's still wet. 3rd - Today - I go to check on the hen and she is really agitated. Why? Because something has stolen 5 of her eggs and there is a crushed egg with the half developed chick inside underneath her. Now I only have 6 eggs left under her and I'm about to just give up. My brother works at a feed store so I asked him to see if he can find anyone who will let me borrow a bator. Maybe I can try to hatch the eggs that way. Am I doing something wrong? Please if anyone has any suggestion on what I could do better I would appreciate it very much.
