This is our first chick from our first incubated batch of eggs from our first chickens. He hatched about 15 minutes ago. He's pretty lively -- it took him about 1 hour from pip to hatch, WAY faster than all the others, who have barely done more than pip in the last 15 hours or so. (I say 'he', but I've no idea of the sex) Dad was a Rhode Island Red, mom was a Buff Orpington. 1 down, 26 to go.
