Once again most of our chicks hatched on day 20. We had 7 successful hatches yesterday and one before church this morning. That’s a total of 8 chicks from 17 eggs. Eight bundles of complete fluffy cuteness!
We are still not feeling very successful at this egg hatching yet. We obviously don’t have something right yet. We had two chicks die while trying to break out of their eggs yesterday. They were completely formed pecking and chirping, but died before they got out of the egg. So we will read more and research more before we start another batch. Any advise? I need a broody hen, right?
