Awwwwww. That is so cute!!! Now maybe I will find my camera tomorrow as I clean to get ready for Christmas, and declutter the house with DH gone!
Thats a cutie....what about the other egg.....is it still hopeful to hatch?
The other egg was rolling around Saturday morning, then nothing. I opened it this morning, and there was a dead chick, yolk absorbed. I think next time an egg is rocking and peeping, I will not wait so long. I am upset and my DH, was upset as well. I never thought he would be sad over the egg. We could have saved it.

Yay, for a chickie with a nice strong, complete beak! What kind of chicken is she?
Looks like a BIG one! What kind? Cutie-pie for sure!
Congrats on the hatch!
Cute chic! I love your thermometer. Sorry about the other egg. Don't blame yourself......there must be a reason. Congratulations on the one that hatched. That's awesome. I can't wait to try it this spring.
WHAT A CUTIE!
Just a thought of mine.
I have noticed that eggs in our incubators really get rolled around like little bowling balls
when the first chick/chicks hatch and I was seeing a lot of chicks die for no aparent reason.
Thinking this could be one of the causes I set out to stop it.
I now cut a small square of the rubber shelf liner with the holes into about a 8X8 inch square
and place this in the middle of the wire rack THEN I take 4 of the FAT fluffy pipe cleanes and twist them
into a square and put that on the rubber mat THEN place my eggs on/in this for the hatch they do not
seem to get tossed around as much and my hatch rate did get better.
