Good Luck.  I just experienced my first hatching last saturday.  I had 5 out of 6 partridge cochin hatch and only saw one hatch properly as two hatched Friday night while we were sleeping and one on saturday needed alot of assistace which was more stressful than amazing (bless him/her)  and then another one hatched saturday night.  One took 24 hours to hatch and one took less than an hour.  Wishing you well.

They are really cute.  Three of them are doig really well.  One has got a little infection on his leg and not putting his foot down, but is still managing to get around and eat and drink.  The vet gave him an antibiotic injection and going again tomorrow for a second one.
The other one has no visible sign of problems but loses his balance and then falls over and cant get himself back up.  Its upsetting to watch him, bless.  The vet is not sure what is causing it but is happy that he is eating and drinking also.  I thought maybe he had mild splay leg just in one leg and thought I might try splay leg correctors.  Dont want to cause any more damage though, so not sure. :(

Its quite stressful at the momet but also pretty amazing as they are so cute just hope I can pull these two little fellows through.

Chickway.

What have you got coming on Friday?  Am excited about mine but don't know when they are coming yet.  Have got to wait for the hens to start laying again and breeder wants to test fertility first.  Urrrrggggg  :D  :D
