    I've never hatched a baby this big, not even the ducks were as tall as this one! It's 5 inches tall, it ducked when I took it's pic. It was hatched Tuesday morning, this pic is from Wednesday, it's not too good, it's off my cell-phone. Gatekeeper sent me some eggs and this is survivor of the PO handlers.

    Now the big question,,,, what kind and what sex??? Better pic to come.

    I thought he was worth seeing, he's huge, and so sweet.

    I have no idea what it is but I just have to say that for some reason that pic makes it look like the chick is in some kind of refrigerator/freezer. [​IMG]

    Feet heck the whole baby is huge! He/she was 5 inches tall less than 24 hours after it hatched on Tuesday morning.
