I'm sorry. They are probably working because for the first week or two it will bother them when they tap them and the prongs move around in their nose so they'll avoid that. But you def. will want to think about maybe fixing them one at a time so that the shield blocks their forward view or they'll still be able to aim and peck after a while.
The pen looks gorgeous! Will y'all come help dh build mine? LOL Construction is not his strong point.. love the man but it's true.
Sarah I'm sure you told me but I can't remember, when you set your shipped eggs, did you avoid turning them for 3 days like I've read on BYC?
ETA: Just set the mottled AM and silkie eggs now, don't want to wait too long, 2 of the silkie eggs are questionable to me. Really porous, so if they've got a chance the sooner the better.
