    Final score was 5 out of 6 eggs. 2 blue laced red Wyandottes, 2 Americaunas(not sure what color, they both look different) and one lonely Maran. I broke the other Maran egg and it only had yolk, nothing even tried to develop.
    Going to let my friend borrow the incubator tomorrow for some game bantams and Americaunas too. It will be her first time hatching and her plunge into the chicken crowd.

    They wouldn't hold still, so they are blurry, I will try for better pics this afternoon. Sheldon(Americauna) the last one to hatch, still has some stuff stuck to the side of his head and back, not hindering him in any way though. I'm gonna give the poor guy a break and clean it after work with a warm washrag.

    Thanks, I love these guys, my first own hatch in many many years and the first ones I get to keep for myself. I put them beside my 10 week old silkies(got them already hatched) and the silkies are totally amazed trying to see better what I put there beside them, standing on their perch and stretching their little fuzzy necks out :)

    Short videos of the hatching and then one day old. Sheldon is going to be a special guy or girl, always the first in my hand, to my hand and just standing out from the crowd. 2 days old and I already have a favorite :)

    The hatching


    Day 1, guess which one Sheldon is lol

    Video from earlier today
    Wyandottes have a sleepy beside their new stuffed doggie and the darker Americauna chick, who seems to be the bully rudely wakes them up
