    This is so exciting. I actually got to see the first one come out.
    How long do they flop around?
    How long before they dry?
    I eat chickens for breakfast.(Sorry my husband learned how to edit my post.He thinks he's funny)
    My 2nd chick has a crack in the egg, a little movement but he isnt making any noise. The first one made all kinds of racket thru the night and only took a few hrs to come out. Should I be worried about the other one? I will post pics soon. Thanks, Krista

    They will take a while to fluff out. Mine took a day to get his land legs but your might be quicker [​IMG]. Your second egg may be resting

    They do take awhile to get their legs under them...the first one is really alright and drying out or fluffing up takes sometime...The second one is just resting and learning to breath...they don't all come out at the same rate.....
