Long hatch and hybrid vigor
We've had a strangely
elongated hatch this time around, which I think is due to cold weather
in temperature within the incubator. But it's hard to
complain when the final count is 18 living chicks, two yolkers (which
were either infertile or died very young), and one fully formed but
dead in the shell chick. (It's possible even that last guy might
have hatched, but I thought for sure he was dead when he hadn't pipped
by the end of day 23!)
Our chicken waterer keeps the brooder clean so our flock can steer clear of childhood diseases.
