This photo was taken during my first ever attempt at incubating and hatching my own chicks. It had been an anxious 21 day wait and it was so exciting when the eggs began rocking. The next day several had ‘pipped’. This photo shows two newly hatched chicks and the chick in the egg on the right bottom corner has pipped, ready for hatch.
I didn’t want to open the incubator as that would affect humidity and temperature at an especially critical time, so this photo was taken through a very small viewing window!
