|A baby Phoenix chick.|
At 3 p.m. when I looked into the incubator, I saw this:
And here we are an hour later and the little chick is chirping and trying to come out:
|Rhode Island Red egg with chick trying to come out.|
|Chick was less than 1 minute old when I took this picture. It will remain in the incubator several more hours to dry off and get warm before I move it to the brooder.|
|The light one is the Phoenix chick (1st pic); the big red one is the Rhode Island Red chick once it got dry and warm; the one in the back looking straight on is a Phoenix chick and the dark one in the back is an Ameraucana.|
We have 7 more eggs in the incubator so we'll have a fun filled day watching babies hatch.
