The peeps began hatching out on Sunday. Three popped out at about the same time and then two more followed together 12 hours later. It’s been a full day and no more so we are probably done.
The hatch rate was not good, probably due to the young roosters, but the ones that did hatch popped out of their shells like it was nothing and they are very healthy, so I am pleased. I will attempt to sex them tomorrow. On to the pics…
This little guy is spinning in a circle breaking the shell. He is only about 5 minutes away from emerging here. You can just see his beak on the upper right where he has ripped through the membrane (the black line is the tear).
Here are the 3 that hatched about the same time. They are just about dry, but not fluffed yet. They are eggshausted at this point.
My new little flock…
