what kind of chick is it?
Thanks for posting these. I learned so much from this site so that we could incubate our eggs successfully. We had a big day today--one chick hatched mid-day, and another tonight about 11:30. You can see our first one hatching here: http://learningtable.blogspot.com/2012/04/chicken.html
