We Have Chickens

After wondering if we had over cooked the eggs,  we had a great surprise this morning.  We had one chick waiting to com  out and about 7 more working on the Pip Hole.

As of 4pm, we have 4 baby chicks, and a few more on the way.  It has been lots of fun watching them work their way out.  A great experience.


The leader almost out.


Our first chicken!!


Number 1 after a few hours of drying out.


We watched the 2nd baby pop out of its egg.  We saw how hard he had to work to break free.  

You can see how wet they are at first, and how they begin to fluff up after a few hours.


The entire crew, 3 hatched, and 1 in process.
