  1. Incubation & Hatching
    This is my first time incubating and this is my first chick to hatch. Has anyone seen something like this on a chicks head before? Pictures are kind of hard to get because of the shape of my incubator. I can't tell if its head didn't develop properly or if it's a tumor maybe?

    I recently started incubating. I've got five chicks so far. I have larger eggs from my Sapphire gems and smaller eggs from chickens that are part banny. All of the smaller eggs are hatching and doing fine except for two that were deformed because of a power outage I'm assuming. My larger eggs...

    Hi, I want to add a few chickens to my flock and I wanted to try out hatching! I read somewhere that when incubating you should have a minimum of 6 eggs or else they're less likely to hatch, is this true? I recently ordered 4 before reading that, should I order more?

    Aloha! I set my incubator some days ago and it seems to be working really good. In the area where I live it rains some days a week so humidity is always over 60%, sometimes over 70%.
