    been waiting all day for this..... judging by color (and the fact that I marked the egg as Del), I'm pretty sure this is a purebred Delaware

    Quote:I'm not sure Chance wouldn't be interested in a snack if I let him any closer -- though he did seem quite interested and concerned about the Leghorn chicks when they were in the house. He often chose to sleep close to their temporary brooder and try to get his nose on them. I actually did get to the point that I trusted he wasn't going to try anything. [​IMG]

    2nd chick is out -- it's another Delaware.

    One hasn't made much progress since pipping the shell and outer membrane this morning. I'm starting to get a little worried about it. One of the RSLxDel chicks pipped the shell but doesn't seem to have gotten any further yet. The other 8 don't appear to be doing much of anything.
