Now there are at least 6 and another just broke out of his egg. :) They are so loud! (We slept on our couches last night, by the way. There will definitely be a different plan next time!)
I was thrilled to see that one of the "travel babies" hatched. He made it!! I took a total of 4 eggs to the classes and had the 3 that were actually still growing marked. The kids are going to thrilled! I've seen a couple of the kids out and about this past week, and the first thing they do is ask me about the chicks! Zootopia - your grandson is going to be so excited!
I'm also wondering about taking my babies out and putting them in the brooder. Now there are two more wet babies, so I guess I'll wait some more.
It is fun! It makes me really look forward to April when I set the eggs that I'm keeping!
Some of the chicks just come out screaming!! It always amazes me that something so tiny can be so loud!! I am so excited to hear that your travelers made it!! Yeah!! You should get pictures of the kids with the chicks when you take them to school!!
Zootopia and Jenanneray ( and anyone else I am forgetting to name) good luck with the rest of you babies, I can't wait to see pics!!
Well 20 out of the 21 that went into lockdown hatched for me. One egg was quite strange, the air cell went down the side, instead of being in the top end. These were home eggs not shipped. The air cell went the entire length and took about 1/3 of the egg. When I did the eggotopsy I think the chick just ran out of air, it had tried to pip but had missed the air cell and never externally pipped. Sad, but I have 20 beautiful babies, and can't wait to see how they grow.
