Hatching Day Three

Round about 9pm last night, another chick popped out.  At times the hatching room sounds like someone's driving a squeeky shopping cart round and round.

12 pm - the latest fuzzyball is still drying out.  I've removed the partially hatched eggs where it appears that the chicks died in hatching.  It's sad but sometimes these things happen.  Meanwhile I'm leaving the other eggs to see what happens.  The babies will be moved to a separate nursery later this afternoon.
