    I think I know exactly how these hatching chicks must feel. We had three hatch today and looks like another 4 have pipped. So far that is 7 out of the 15 culled down to 12 we had. Not giving up yet on the other 5. But what excitment. My two girls got to watch two of them hatch. Now that was very exciting for us all. But boy am I beat. LOL

    I think so far they are looking like RIR's from what the lady had that I got the eggs from. Big excitement starting again. I had two Araucana eggs, one I candled and had all kind of movement in the other was so dark I could not see anything but the air cell. The dark one has just pipped. [​IMG]

    We have had another one hatch and yet another just on the brink of coming out. I am going to have to get a picture of the one though for an identification. It's all black with black feet and beak. Have to see what she looks like once all dried off.
