I’ve also found that they seem to struggle outside of the incubator, if left in the incubator after 6 hours. They do need to be babied if taken too soon after 4 hours.
Research wry neck before egg hatching. It’ll freak you out if you aren’t prepared and have never seen it.
Second part: Can anyone recommend a balanced homemade chicken feed for adult egg layers?
Have a great day guys!
Megan Abdsllah wrote:Yes, I’ve read that. Did you have good luck with your chicks leaving them in for 36 hours? What brand of incubator did you use?
We read if chicks are left in for too long (8hours or more) they might develop lung problems straight away or later in life.
We had awesome success with our first two chicks in which we took out at around 8 hours.
All of our chicks were fluffy and not wet. The ones that had troubles have a different mother from their strikingly diff. markings.
