    Chick #2 was kinda a surprise. I checked the eggs right before I went out to do my barn chores. Nothing new going on in the bator. About 40 minutes later DH comes out to tell me I have two chicks and the second one wasn't one of the pipped eggs! First light Brahma chick

    After dinner I went to check on the eggs and the second egg that had pipped early this morning was fully zipped, just had to pop the top!

    Second light Brahma chick!
