    [​IMG] The first chick hatched this afternoon while I was at work...loud little bugger! Two more pipped and 12 others rocking. I'm pretty sure this first chick is a day early, so much for keeping accurate records. lol Going to be a noisy night if one of the other pipped ones doesn't come out to play with the loner soon.

    Nicksmom32...don't be overly concerned, sometimes they don't move very much and it is hard to see.


    Here are a couple of photos of this hatch. Nothing cuter than chick butts...lol I had a hard time getting photos of them as they wanted to climb in my hand or peck at the camera. So I finally gave up and took the famous bird in the hand shot.
