    Look at these babies!!!! I took these pics a little while ago. The third one is almost out now and the one that is pipped is steady working on getting out. The fifth egg I can't tell, there may be a pip on the bottom where I can't see, but I have not checked. I will just let it be for now. They are not due to hatch until tomorrow anyway. See how the chick is pecking a line around the egg? (Zipping)

    They will be white. They always hatch with that reddish color on the wings and head. I am sure it is blood from the veins in the egg. It comes off in the first day or two. Here is a pic of my hen Phyllis and her 5 babies.

    Isn't Phyllis lovely? She is a very good Mom too.
