    Gold Wyandotte Hatching

    Remember this guy from day 8 on the candling page?
    Well, here's how it all turned out on day 23.

    Pipped a nice section

    Another angle

    Now it starts to really push

    It gets a wing out

    And finally the head unfolds - whew

    Rock 'n roll around the incubator
    (still attached to the yolk here)

    Dry off a bit, then into the brooder for a nap

    Dry and fluffy now, time to start exploring

    Ever have one hatch in your hands? Or better yet, in your children's (or G'children's) hands? Now THAT's a "AWWW!" moment.

    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:
