Just be careful with the newspaper in the brooder- chicks can get splayed legs. You are better off putting some paper towels under them. Pine shavings is great also.

my previous experience with pine-shavings is that the chicks start digging in it and the water and food will be covered in pine shavings....3 more hatched today....will keep the incubator on till friday hoping more will hatch.....It looks like no Welsummers came out to hatch...I'm just a little bummed about that since I love that breed...

Yay!!! Congratulations!!!! I'm glad you got a good hatch. I'd leave the welsummers in another day or two, who knows, maybe they'll hatch late.


I also agree that it'd be good to use old towels or pine shavings in the brooder. I had a chick with a splayed leg once and it was awful.

I had the same experience with the pine shavings... it was a pain cleaning out the water and food multiple times a day. Never had any splayed leg though. Anyhow, thanks for the pics... they're so cute!!!

Wonderful Feike! Looks like you did a great job hatching those eggs. I loved reading those stories on here so far. I hope they enjoy watching them grow as well as they enjoy the chicks?
Keep up the great work! The world needs more people like you!
Thanks
