BABY CHICKENS ARE HATCHING AS I TYPE! RIGHT NOW! ONE IS BORN!

"And is flipping around the incubator like a possessed bat. Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but for a little three minute old chick, he's doing some amazing acrobatics." ~Henry

One down (fluffy down, that is) sixteen more to go. We'll keep the blog abreast (I say, I say, I say, boy) as the day progresses. This is so exciting! Birth in the morning.
look, a pip in a third egg!
