I was trying to nap when I heard the birth yell. I was very surprised. The chicks were all two or three (or was it four?) days late. This is one day. I saw there was no baby in the incubator when I checked twenty minutes later.
I went down the hall, and was using my phone to talk to you guys when I heard "I'm so tired and scared!" so I wandered down the hall as I typed. It was then I saw the humidity, and had to go.
Humidity was @20!!!!!
The first one was pipped, and I exposed its cute (yes, I was awed, Banti!) bill. I went a little more before checking its sibling. I noticed the pip was on the wrong end. Neither baby responded to the eggs being picked up. You know they should have been loud and wiggling.
I opened it up as you see in the picture. Both went with me to the kitchen for a better look and assist. I was still kinda muddle headed (cough cough) so I made a mistake. I did the first, moistening and exposing. Then the second. When it looked "good enough" I went back to the first, and went too fast. I don't think I killed it or anything. The humidity was already at 57% when I put them back in. I will check again soon.
I can't believe they are both making it!!
Banti, I had wanted to take a picture of a half fluffed baby for you. I am sorry you will have to wait.
BILLS THAT ARE HATCHING THE BURD. HOW PRECIOUS. Come on darlings!!
I can wait, as long as they hurry!
