    Here they are, there are 2 more hatching but one seems to be quite weak, having some trouble and I don't know it it will survive.

    Never underestimate the power of electrolytes! Get the weak chick out of the shell, if it is still in there, and hydrated with 'quick chick' or another brand ASAP. Even clear gatoraide will work, if you don't have the mix electrolytes. Congrats on them all.
