My sweet Coronation Sussex eggs that I had bought from BYC auction are in lock down. Today is day 21 and I came home to find a bright eyed curious baby girl peeping at me. I was so happy to see her. Then I noticed the egg she zipped out of was zipped right down the middle! Wow, how did she do that? Cus I thought they only hatch well from the big end of the egg. I have another egg that has made a nice pip with air hole on the small end of the egg. This baby is currently resting. I am hoping she makes her zip out ok, but will watch in case she needs a bit of help. Anyone else experience unusual hatches that they were not expecting? Ok adding pics, kinda hard as they were playing eggball with their sleeping siblings so the pics are a bit blurry. As soon as these 2 girls are dry enough I am taking them to their new momma in the broody pen that currently has a couple of week old babies. One of her chicks is a soft yellow with racing stripes so these 2 should blend in.
