    My wife and I set 41 eggs (11 Blue Ameraucana, 6 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, 20 Black Copper Marans, and 4 Easter Egger Mutts) on the 5th of January. We woke up to the sound of a very anxious Blue Ameraucana who zipped and hatched in 25 minutes. We have had four more pip over the last 4 hours, but no more have hatched yet. We will get some pictures up shortly.

    Is it only me, or does everybody act like a teenage girl when chicks are hatching?

    It's almost as if WE accomplished something when a chick hatches. It's not as if we laid the egg or anything, but we are all proud parents. Congratulations, and here's hoping that you get a bunch more!

    Yayyyy!!! Hatching is so exciting! But a bit nerve wracking at times.

    It's just like with all babies, human or whatever with me. They make me googly-eyed and make me talk funny.

    It's ok. I think it's universal.

    Here are a few pictures of the first blue ameraucana chick (More in this flickr set).

    About 10-15 minutes after hatching:

    So tired that it tripped, ended up on its back, and fell asleep before it could get up.

    Number two just hatched, but it appears his navel is protruding and has a touch of blood on it. Hope things go well for him.
