I had 3 harchedout this morning. 2 black and white ones and a yellow one. More eggs were pecked.

My one hen who has not hatched her eggs and has been setting for 30 days is gonna get them.

I'll take the eggs out from under her tomorrow night and put the chick's under her to raise.

I've had good luck transplanting chick's I've bought under hens in the past.

The key is ya gotta do it at night.

Is this to spray the eggs to help keep them at the right temp?

Sorry lots happening here with my daughter.

I hatched 10 chick's. One died and one has a leg issue but I'm feeding it by hand and have a small chick sling I fashioned to help it build strength in its legs.
