I apologise for not updating you sooner! The results for the hatch were 3 very cute and fluffy Wyandotte chicks.
Sadly, none of the Dorking eggs made it, and one Wyandotte chick was too weak, and passed away this morning. It's been a huge learning curve, and as a result, we'll be selling our incubator and getting one that is more automatic. Marty and I really didn't enjoy the stress that came with incubating, and the terrible hatch-rate was heartbreaking for both of us.
But, you just have to look in the brooder box and see the little chicks running around, pecking, eating and flapping those cute fluffy wings, to cheer up no end. :) See?
Until next time.
