Poor Chickie :(

The little chick didn't make it through the night. I think he was having issues with being alone and the other chickies are taking their time hatching out. I had to take him out of the incubator when he got strong enough to stand so that he didn't stand up and get burned on the heating element. Chicks need to be with other chicks the don't do as well alone. We thought he was doing okay and could make it by himself until the others finished hatching today but we were wrong. We have six trying to hatch this morning so hopefully we'll have better luck today.
