And the chick on the right looks like it wants to hatch really soon!

almost looks like the bator wall is in his way poor thing . thank you for haveing this up me and my son love watchin
It's at my kids' school, and sadly, I don't have access to the classroom again til 7:30 or so tomorrow morning. But yeah, if I was there, I would be sneaking in and turning it a little. I'm so bad at lockdown.
He got out ok . He is sooo cute my son never gets tired of watching them hatch. What kind of chick is he?
I admit to being pretty absent minded, and that is the one egg that I can't quite remember. I think he/she is either a wellsummer or a barnevelder, and probably a mix. Either breed is fine with me, which is probably why I can't remember for sure.
Poor thing got that gook on his back , looks like a cross between silly putty a loogie and poop. Well regardless of what he is he is dang cute.
Fallen and I cant get up comes to mind . There tummies are just so round
A camra ham as well . she pushed the rest of the eggs back where we cant see she wants the lime light to herself looks like
I know, wasn't that diva-ish of her?!
How long has that egg been pipped do you know . Seems like she is trying to zipp length wise instead of around, if she has been pipped for more then 24 hours and dosnt progress soon she may need help.
That one has been pipped less than 24 hours. It pipped around 19 or so hours ago. I also felt like it may have pipped earlier than it was supposed to and will need longer. Can't say WHY I think that, just that I do.
When I went to set up the camera around 4pm yesterday, it wasn't moving at all. If I tapped on the incubator, the other two would move around, but this one didn't. I had pretty much decided it had died, and have had a bad feeling about it.
When I went in this morning to get the two hatched chicks out, I was genuinely surprised to see this chick was still alive and moving around in there.
For whatever reason, my chicks generally like to torture me and take at least 24 hours from pip to hatch.
I am not afraid of intervening, and am probably a little quick to do so, but this particular one, I don't think I will even consider helping until tomorrow morning.
