Oh deary me, did someone say peacock eggs? (my un attempted unicorn of hatches) sigh someday....when I can devote full attention to notes&there's not diapers to change.
-band aids whoa! If you use a clear patch one I wonder if it would almost be like a little window into the eggs "womb"💡🔎

Thank you! I'm not sure it is the yolk. It wasn't there right after he hatched. Just started and kept growing. I did remove the other 2 chicks that were dry so they would leave him alone.

Did anybody set for the fourth of July? I didn't set yesterday which is the technical set date but I set 8 NN eggs today and will set a bunch of cemani eggs tomorrow. They tend to hatch two days early so probably will hatch on the 4th. Wouldn't be surprised if the NNs hatch early either.

I also had to steal back the keet that I had given my broody hen. It just wasn't thriving with her - the size difference between it and two I had kept inside was very noticeable so it's probably a good thing that I decided to take it. She still has the AC cross chick I gave her so she's happy.
