7:30 am It's been a busy hour! By 6:45 our first baby, from a blue-green egg, was working its way out of the shell. It was "born" right at 7 am, and a second hatchling, from the same mother, zipped its shell off within about 15 minutes. Right now I am drinking my coffee to the sweet and very persistant peeping of two cute chicks that are alternately struggling and resting, letting the warmth of the incubator fan fluff them up.The first EE born is mostly black, with a blackbeak. The second is gold, with a pink beak. My two year old is over the moon about the birds!
After several hatches, my teen is not super excited about hatching chicks anymore--however, he does like to be funny.
