See the little black hole, that's chickee number 1!
When I came in there was a hole in one of the eggs and I could hear a quiet cheeping sound. You could just see the chick wriggling around inside. It looked black so we think it will have black feathers. I saw it's mouth open and shut when it peeped. Where the shell had cracked it sort of looked like a bumpy circle. A little more of the shell has broken off as the day has gone on.
After morning tea we could clearly see the beak popping out of the hole and hear louder cheeping.
We made predictions about what time the eggs had started to hatch and what time we should see the chickens, it can take 24 hours for them to come out of their shells. Our average prediction was 6am for egg number 1 and 10.30am for egg number 2 so that means that the chicks might not be out until 6am tomorrow or 10.30am tomorrow. Elliott has volunteered to be our early morning scientist.
Keep your fingers crossed for our little chickees! We hope they hang in there and make it to full fluffiness.
