Well no more yet. 1 pipped at the wrong end, so I might have to give it a hand at some stage. Another has pipped but the others no sign yet. I guess I'll wait for another day or 2 before calling it quits.

I also had 15 due Thursday/Friday and 5 hatched yesterday morning ,of the others 5 were dead in there eggs -fully developed but dried out .None were moving so I checked them all. The others were dried out when i checked last night with beaks through and very weak so i helped them a bit last night .4 OK this morning .We had a power out on Wed (don't know how long .)But they really looked like a humidity drop . Anyway I have 9 - 5 are PRs that Iv been hanging out for. Hope something more happens with yours Wendy.Good luck

Hi Annie, thats terrible. Im glad you got some out anyhow. I ended up helping out the one who pipped wrong end. I kept checking the membrane till it was no longer bloody and just peeled it about an hour ago. Chickies in the bator till much later maybe even tomorrow. I have another eggs thats still pipping and a Polish egg as well. The others are looking eerily silent, but we'll see I suppose. The fan in my incubator that stopped working about a month ago, hasnt been replaced so Im getting it in after this hatch!! So now theres 6

;)Sometimes we just have to give a little help .Its hard knowing when to and when to let go.Glad your chick was successful.Posted eggs are always just a little weaker.How are you going with your polish hatching ?such great birds I know what you mean about the fan .I tried 1 lot with no fan ,not good.
Well the Polish hatched a while ago and the Wyandotte egg that was pipping is zipping as I type. Tomorrow I will candle and see if theres any life on the other eggs. Im not confident though. I'll leave them in a bit longer even if theres no sign of life..just in case. One of my Polish chicks that hatched last week has wry neck or something. its alot better after tlc and vitamins, but Im not sure its going to make the distance. Its not growing as fast as it should be. Another one has what appears to be a fused knee on one leg. the joint just wont move for some reason! AAAAGGGHH! The first 5 Polish are all healthy as.Living completely outside with the Faverolles. This lot I have 2 out of 3 with something wrong. The 4th whos just hatched fingers crossed its ok. I might have to look at giving mum and dad some extra vitamins or something. I will try to post a heap of chick pics of all of them, Favs and Polish included.
Wendy-Looking forward to seeing photos.Sounds as though the others are doing well are they cute to?Do your outside chicks have heat ? What age are all of you putting them outside ? Im always worried about putting them out .Over protective ,me thinks!

Unfortunately the chick that hatched last night had to be put down both of its legs were fused at the knee joint like the Polish has 1 knee fused. I know now it is due to a heat problem in the bator. Alans doing the fan for me asap! The wry necked chick is also no longer with us It just got worse last night and was obviously not going to thrive.
Annie, I put all the Faverolles and Polish chick out in a wooden hutch filled with straw at about 3 weeks of age. as there is over 20 chicks in the sleeping compartment at night, they are fine. They keep themselves nice and toasty. The hutch is covered with a tarp. They have a large enclosed run that we attached to the hutch. When I take some pics of them you can see. I wouldnt have normally put them out at such a young age if it werent so many chicks. They will soon outgrow the hutch so Im looking for something to make them a new night sleeping quarters. Im thinking a dog kennel will do the trick nicely.
