    One hatched this morning, the other was out by this afternoon. There was a beak sticking out of one of the eggs this afternoon and 5 others that had pipped. They had me worried as they were a day late. Photos are poor quality, but the next series should be better. I was using my boyfriend's point and shoot so I could take video too...you'd think a point and shoot would be easier than my SLR but apparently not.

    Here are their videos (can't figure out how to flip some of the video clips the correct way):

    Update:
    There are now 9 of them. The yellow one that was newly hatched in the video is the same fluffy yellow one in the pictures.

    My hen decided she did not feel like hatching the rest of her eggs today. I came home to one gray one cold and wet in the nest, but still alive. It's doing fine now as is another one that hatched this evening under a heat lamp. I stuck the remaining 3 eggs (one with a pip, wiggles, and peeps) back under the hen along with the 2 she abandoned earlier. She looked like she was settled for the night in her pen, so hopefully she'll take care of everyone.
