    HAHAAH, yes first chicks from the incubator.. and this morning we find 1 more hatching... The spotted ones are... no clue.. i have white leghorn mamas, and daddies are RIR and a Barred rocker... all 3 of them have little black spots... and my little black one has a HUGE white dot on its head... boy??... its so fat it has a double chin... i didint know chicks could get fat rolls... he waddles when he walks and scoots his tummy on the ground HAHAHA.. SOO funny!!! Another brown egg is hatching and it looks to be another little black one.... another white egg is knocking... and one of my green eggs is chirping really loud... that shell seems SOO Ohard on those green ones... im worried.. its been pipping for 3 days now...

    Have you ever helped stuck chick before? I have with great success. You will need a cup of warm water, a damp and a dry paper towel, also a pair of tweezers will come in handy.

    I had to help the black one out... and yes used just those props... the other little black one just is not coming out either.. yesterday when we were gone 2 hours two of the yellow ones hatched right out.. why does it take some so long and others not? there are 4 knockers now.. in the white eggs and still the little green one... i wish they would hurry.. i hate waiting.. we are only on day 21 though for these guys.. be patient holly, be patient!

    From my experience, humidity plays a big part. If you are a very expectant mother opening the incubator too often can cause the interior membrane to dry out making it difficult for the little guy to get turned around inside the egg.

    and blackie just hatched and walking around already.. another white egg is breaking through... yeah ive been told that and read so much on that too... but we have handled the eggs daily, candled them nightly, held the babies as soon as they were born... they all seem to be doing GREAT.. im thinking maybe cause my house is as warm as the incubator and HOT!...??

    Also if your incubator doesn't have auto turner, then the chick could develop leg problems again making it difficult to turn inside the egg. :)
