    No surpise one of the Blue Orp/Buff Brahma bitties busted out of HER egg first. She pipped around 9:00 last night and by 6 this morning she is out. At first I though she was black but now that she is starting to dry she is looking silvery so I am pretty sure she is a blue.

    Sorry about the poor quality my window was slightly fogged up.

    Congratulations on the new chick [​IMG]

    She's looking healthy and cute. I hope the others too will make it. Good luck!

    I just saw that another buf brahma/blue orp baby has pipped and is really working on her egg. I missed it earlier because it is on the underside of the egg. I bet this baby will be out before 10:00. [​IMG]

    In the last pic you can see what I am assuming to be yoke stuck to the bitty's bum and a little bit of white something also. Should I be worried about this? Also with the hatch of this last chick my humidity as gone up to 85%, should I do anything about this?
