|This was at 4:30 pm when it just started to pip!|
Yesterday one of our eggs started to pip, As it can take 24 hours or more for a chick to hatch I thought we would have a chick the next day.
A few hours later there was a HUGE crack and cheeping! It was really strange not being able to see the chick but hearing it.
|This was at 7:30, it had made a much bigger crack this time!|
|This was at 9:10, as you can see it has made an even BIGGER crack this time!|
|This was only 5 mins after and look at the difference!!!!!|
When we were sent to bed (my eye's were just drooping) we was called down to see that the chick had kicked off a huge chunk of the egg. We stayed down a bit longer and it finally punched through and we saw a wing!
|AWWWWWWWWW, look at it's beak!|
|And this was minutes before the hatching! :D|
A few minutes later it was fully hatched! it looked better than i expected but it still looked like a soggy mess.
|sorry.. it's a bit blurred... BUT, AWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!|
Now (as I'm typing) the little chick is much more fluffy! We will be moving it into a cage which I bought for my rat but it's been donated to the chick. It's going to be put in to the attic (which will be my room very soon) where it's safe and quiet! Sadly, the big one hasn't made it... there was nothing in it except yolk it was not fertilized so we had to throw it away for the chick but it wasn't going to make it anyway, one of the eggs was late in so that one still has a descent chance, the other one has less of a chance :'(
|... ;') This is one we made earlier !!! ;)|
