Yay! Another very successful hatch! All five chicks are established in their brooder, the last having hatched out at 11am.
This is a picture of an egg that has "zipped." First the egg pips, which means it makes the initial break in the shell. Then it sits like this for hours and hours, sometimes for more than a day. Than, the chick starts to pip around the shell, or "zipping." It goes around in a circle so that it can then push and bust out of the shell. It is really cool to watch!
