I’ll start with a sentimental picture of adorable fluffy chicks, so that everyone can say, “Aaaaah”.
But the point of this post is simply to show eggs as they hatch. I managed to record all of the final four of our hatching eggs. Two on Friday lunchtime, one late afternoon, and the final one on Saturday morning at about 8am.
Practically I can only take pictures through the thick plastic lid of the incubator, for to lift it off for pictures would risk chilling the hatch and killing the newborn chicks. So please forgive the flare on some of the pictures.
- Egg Number 1
- Egg Number 2
The next egg was already starting to hatch as the first one emerged, and I didn’t have the opportunity to move it to a more photogenic position. The pictures had to be taken through the curved part of the lid.
- Egg Number 3
Once more, this time without captions. You know the sequence by now …
- Egg Number 4
- And finally …
… just because I can’t resist publishing it:
More cute chix pix in the next few days. I can sit and watch them for hours!
Phew! That was hard work getting out of there!
