    Hi,
    Guess what!
    ok, so we let Penguin the mother sit on the rest of the eggs. Just cause we felt bad and didn’t want to take them from her. so yesterday night another chick hatched! We are so happy!!!!! Then this morning we wake to find another one!!!!!
    And one of the 5 eggs left is hatching!!!! it has been egg-actly a week since the first two hatched. can you believe it.

    First and second chick hatched July 4th
    Third chick hatched July 10th
    Forth chick hatched July 11th
    Also a fifth chick is hatching NOW!!!!! No I was wrong. It’s HATCHED!!!! July 11th

    This is the second chick born. her name is Liberty (libby or berty for short)
    the other chick is first born. her name is Independence (Indy for short)
