Day Twenty One – we have hatching!
October 25, 2008 § 1 Comment
As of 7.45 this morning we have seven chicks hatched, and two more pipping. Had to lift Poppy very carefully off the nest to see them all and retrieve broken egg shells etc, and she was back on as soon as we let her, deflated and flowing as far sideways as her feathers could stretch.
The eggs that have hatched so far are numbers 5, 7 10, 11 12, 13 and 14.
Keeping ourselves from checking every five minutes is going to be a serious struggle!
