Subtitle: The Incubator Diaries Part 6
I don’t think there will be any more. It’s two days since the last one hatched and time to call it a day. I will break open the remaining eggs later today and see if there’s a pattern to the hatching failures. A hatch rate of 45% is very disappointing but I suspect the fault is with the eggs rather than the incubation. It’s a lesson to build on for the future, whatever happens.
In the meantime we have seven healthy chicks.
They are now going to have a hectic three days of being the centre of attention as we have people in until Wednesday. There’s something about chicks and children that go well together.
