CHICKY #1 HATCHES!!!!
As of this morning, 31-MAR I have one happy, healthy, chicky baby from Chickenaddict's donated eggs! S/he looks to be cochin/serama mix, little tiny yellow thing, with lightly feathered legs, and "smudges" of grey. Quietest chick I've ever had, too! I kept waiting to hear "peep! peep! peep!" and never heard a sound!I have one chick who has pipped a decent size hole, but seems to be exhausted. There are 3 other eggs in the hatcher that may or may not hatch. I left them in the hatcher this morning, because, quite frankly, letting a chick hatch on my person is rather itchy and dirty... plus the determined little chick was trying to hatch out through my sternum, no matter that I kept rotating the hole to face "outward". If I was at home, where I could monitor and clean up it might be a little different, but at work is a different story.
