Right before I went to sleep Tuesday night I noticed one of the chicks had started to pip through the egg. I was surprised it was early. Usually my chicks are late....just like me, I'm never on time going anywhere...LOL That eggs was not the 1st to hatch though. Here's a picture of that egg.
Anyway, our chicks actually started hatching a day early this time. That has never happened to me before and it was a nice surprise. I woke up early on Wednesday 6-8-11 to a newly hatched chick. It was a cross between a silky and unknown rooster type. I am waiting on confirmation about that. Anyway, here is a picture of that little chick. We started calling it BJ or Bob Jr. We know the rooster (Dad's) went by the name of Bob.
During the course of the morning 3 more chickens hatched. It was great to watch them hatch. I got a lot of it on video also. Here's a picture of some of those eggs before they hatched. You can clearly see the chick's are trying to get out.
Here's a picture of them after they hatched. They are pooped as you can tell.
Here's a very short video (less then 2 minutes) I made of one of the chicks hatching. I made three of them this time and I am FINALLY going to get them posted on Youtube.
