Good morning all Peoples, Peeps and Pips!

Like a scene of a kid at Christmas, the first thing upon waking was rushing to the bator to see what new surprise was there!
Got a few more Marans out (although, frankly, unless I up-end the chicks I cannot tell... Next time won't hatch all yellow chicks), have 3 Marans eggs and one Faverolles egg that are just silently sitting there, the one Faverolle egg with the pip has cracked it a little bit more, but nothing industrious....and Token the TJ's egg has pipped! So I guess the little chickies that have hatched out can just hang out in the incubator...they're -- what -- not even 24 hours old yet and so it shouldn't be detrimental (except to my sanity as they're clunking around like they've got little lead booties on)
Thanks! It was close, wasn't it? The egg wasn't even the egg I had pegged at 11:00 p.m. to do it, but I guess it was inspired by my earlybird 11:40 p.m. hatcher to get zipping. You should've heard all the noise at this house and the cheering when he/she/it finally pushed the shell and fell forward. Guess we'll name the chick Bravo... Whichever one it was. (Again, the perils of having 14 yellow chicks in the bator) You could name your *very cute chick* Contender/Contenda. (even I just groaned...)
Happy New Year, Everybody! May your year be filled with bright promise, good fortune, happy chickens, and great hatches!
