Most of my eggs hatched, I kept getting a wiff of a bad egg every time I opened the bater, so decided the rest of the eggs were no good, tossed them in the bin. Walking past about half an hour later I heard a noise, retrieved the eggs out of the bin and put them back in the bater, two little chicks popped the shell a couple of hours later, could smell the bad egg again, so took all the eggs out and candled them all, except the ones that were still hatching, tossed about four and put the others back in the bater, the eggs were pretty cool by that time. Next morning, woke up to three more chicks hatched perfectly, I wonder how many I killed though.
Makes me wonder again.

Try not to think about the ones you might have done in only think of the ones you saved. My husband put a dead rooster in the compost bin one evening only to lift the lid in the morning and have him jump out and run across the yard. We named him Lazarus and he lived for many more years after that but I have never forgotten the look on his face when the roo jumped out of the bin.

After caesareans in vet hospitals it is not uncommon to have puppies or kittens crying in the 'bin' too.
They are very sedated from the anaethetic for the mother and sometimes appear dead.

Kazlee, I had a similar thing happen. We had a dog whelping and I thought she was done and left her for awhile to bond with the new pups. While I was gone she must have had a difficult birth and pushed it out of the whelping house we had built for her. When I found it, it was cold and appeared dead, no heart beat, not breathing. I even took it into the house and showed hubby and commented on how sad it was. I put it in the wheelie bin to be buried later. About an hour later I could hear a puppy crying. It was the one in the wheelie bin. It must have been warm enough in there and acted like a hot box and warmed it up enough to get things going again.

We called her wheelie of course, and she was a determined, going concern as a young puppy. Very confident and always the first for everything. She went to a working home and I often think about her and wonder how she made out in life.

It is amasing what young animals can survive.

Same thing happened to me with a puppy coopslave, it was as cold as metal, I put it in the sun, thinking my hoping was a waste of time, even the mother thought it was dead, wierd eh ?
But the bin I put the eggs in was in the kitchen, it was cold in there.
I'm always scared to open doors in baters cause of the humidity/ heat loss. But these chicks hatched with no problems.
Sometimes I reckon we over do stuff.

I hate to admit it but last week I had to cull three chickens.I was given advice on how to do it and was horrified when the first chickens head came off .So I wasn't as extreme with the next two and put them in the skip.The next morning when my aunt went to put the rubbish in the bin she almost died of fright when a chicken jumped out and preceded to run around looking for a feed.I think I'll give the job to someone else next time.

Houndanit, When I first started killing things I didn't know weather I could do the job, and my heart just wasn't into it at all, so I ended up torturing things like chooks, rabbits, foxes. and stuff, It became unbearable, I was a nervous wreck. So I stopped, until I was alone one day and something had to be put out of it's misery straight away. I steeled myself, and hardened my head, I was determined to do it right. I did, and it became a whole lot less problem. Make it quick and simple, which is why I plan to make a solid steel v shaped contraption this season, so all I have to do is slide my little roos head in and yank quickly. Problem solved.
