    I don't know what happened, technically, but one black cat looked awful guilty. When I came home from work, I heard chirping coming from the closet, I thought yeah another chick just hatched [​IMG] Oh no [​IMG] the incubator was knocked over and three chicks are freezing, one very near death, you know the head stretching back kinda of thing. I run around with three chicks in my sweatshirt pocket, screaming, "CHICKS DYING HELP ME FIND HEAT" They I ran to the fireplace heater cranked it up and sat there with the little biddies as they warmed up, all along, pushing the almost died one a little to keep it awake. I did save them, all are doing great. Well except for the three other eggs that didn't get to hatch. I have 2 bantam Lavender Ameraucana and one Porcelain D'Uccle. Yeah for me , I saved 3 biddies lives [​IMG]
